Origin's new $999 laptop is for gamers on a budget

Custom PC maker Origin is going right after the budget crowd with its latest gaming laptop, the Eon15-S. Starting at $999, Origin's latest packs in desktop-class graphics with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti chip, along with Intel's 7th-generation Kaby Lake processors.

As the name suggests, the Eon15-S sports a 15-inch 1080p IPS display. While the initial $999 starting configuration includes relatively low specs with an Intel Core i3 processor and 8GB of RAM, the laptop can be outfitted with a 2.8GHz Intel Core i7-7700HQ CPU, up to 32GB of RAM, and up to 2TB of M.2 SSD storage. You can even make your order a little more personal with a wide range of creatively named colors like Eternal Pink and Sabot Grey.

There are certainly better options out there, but given its starting price, the Eon15-S definitely isn't a bad starting point if you just want a game-ready PC you can take on the go. For more, you can check out and customize the Eon15-S at Origin.
