New Gaming Laptop!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello!

While I have been on this forum for a while (to me), most of it has been related to my sig rig or just browsing around.

Before, i thought gaming laptops were only limited to what manufacturers had like the ROG laptops. I had no idea you could actually build a laptop from the ground up( which I found out by going to the origin PC site)

this is the laptop i have configured


EON15-S
Matte Black

ORIGIN Wooden Crate Armor
ORIGIN PC T-shirt Medium

total cost: $2,732

the RAM and HDD I will upgrade myself (you can get them cheaper on amazon)

and I am also looking to see if they can add air intake filters.

I just started recently researching actual customized gaming laptops under 3K, and to me the origin laptop i built seems perfect (the company seems great too), but maybe other gaming laptop brands are like that also?

Let me know what you think of my choices and also if you can recommend other brands or companies that offer similar services, I would really appreciate it (try not to be mean, this is my first foray into the gaming laptop market) biggrin.gif

^ wow that is nice, but with an upgraded processor it goes up to over 3k which i dont really mind that much

The site looks a bit, eh, not being picky here, but i would imagine origin would have better customer service and the like

ill check the site out for 15 inch laptops, thanks!

whoah the site is pretty cool, it looks like they take regular gaming laptops and take them apart to upgrade components of your choosing, i didnt know laptops could do that (someone told me here at ocn that most laptop components were soldered on)

Gaming computers tend to have their components in standardized sockets to make changing GPUs and whatnot easier to change at construction. Makes things go quicker and no need to order a whole new computer when someone wants to change something.

OriginPC is the original cast of people from before Alienware was bought out by Dell. They cost a LOT more than everyone else, but they've got a near flawless record of customer support. Even their support technicians are A+ Certified.


However for a 15.6" machine, that's a little high on the price side. If you're gonna go for a machine like that, I'd go for a 17" model. The larger screen will help if you intend to use machine for a longer duration; Helps your eyes.


I'd go looking at either Powernotebooks.com or XoticPC.com primarily. If you're dead set on Clevo machines, check out Mythlogic.com and Malibal.com. The latter of these two had me hooked and I almost bought a P170HM before they revised the models. tongue.gif
