Im in the market for a gaming laptop with the performance of a desktop. The Alienware 17 im using at the moment witch is the top 2015 spec, is just not good enough.

The best one ive seen so far is the Origin 17.3 with 6700k cpu and gtx980 gpu.

Can anyone recomend any other companys supplying these types of gaming laptops and can anyone comment on Origin products.

Sorry but you are just not going to find a laptop that has the same performance as a decent gaming desktop!! even the 980m in that laptop is not the same as a discreet GPU...

The origin laptops use desktop parts so they will be very close. The 980m is around 20 to 40% down on desktop 980s. Ive seen a freinds laptop running a 980 none mobile and 6700k running at 4.1 and it beats my alienware with a 980m by 31 fps on Battlefeild with ultra settings.

I had a friend that had one of the sager notebooks and it was pretty good for gaming but not the same as my desktop with same specs... good luck with your search and finding what you want. did not mean to insult you just was stating my opinion and experience.

What?! It's a full 6700k cpu and the real 980 desktop gpu, there will be no difference at all

The motherboard might zap a few fps but it should be within 5-8 %.

The only down sides i can see are max overclocks and heat could be and issue, but i have a few ideas for a cool air laptop cooler.

There are lots of comparisons between an MXM 980 and a PCIE 980 and they are within margin of error. There is no difference between a laptop 6700k and desktop 6700k because it is exactly the same thing. Of course overclocking headroom will be better with a desktop.

To be honest i dont realy need the power of the 6700k and 980 as im still playing Grid Autosport and a few other old gen games, and im a bit stuck in my ways when it comes to playing new games. My alienware plays them all ultra settings at 1080, its about how taxing it is on the parts. If i get a desktop based laptop i can underclock a little, still run my games on ultra and the gpu and cpu wont be peeking at full draw. Increasing the life of the laptop buy a far amount. Why dont i just build a desk top again you might ask... I work all over the uk moving every month sometimes.

Ive seen a few laptops now. Realy likeing the internal layout of the OriginEON17-SLX. One pannel off and access to all removable components is easy. Its also a US company rarther than china or tiwain.

Not a typo, you can google it and see, it's actually a dual 980 without m, not a full 200w 980 though as the power delivery is gimped, but those are 980 none the less.

I wonder when it will be possible to buy parts and build a custom laptop at home. Alot of the high end gaming laptops ive seen are useing the Alienware chassis. The gpu, cpu, ram, and storage options are all ready, we just need chassis, cooling and mother board options. Soon maybe.

I would look into the Msi Titans . Very well built. Mech keyboard. Awesome tech support ( i have only had to call one time lol). And i have enough head room on my cooling for some pretty good overclocking. Just my 2 cents.
And yes power delivery is gimped on the 980 sli models. But they are still some pretttttry fast lappys. Not to mention they fit in a bag when you want to go somewhere and play. Hence why i dont own anything but laptops any more lolol:D

I think im close to concluding my search for a monster laptop. Found a company in the uk building on the same chassis as Sager, Origin and quite a few others. PcSpecialist. Sager and Origin laptops where coming in at $3700 to $4200 around £2500 - £3000, with the spec im after. PcSpecialist came in at £2222.90, quite a good saving. Heres the spec ive decided on.

6700k 4ghz - desktop modle
Gtx980 8gb G sync, VR ready, not soldered to MB also desktop modle
16gb Hyper X 2133 2x8 ddr4
Samsung evo m2 pcie ssd 500gb 2k read write......Wow

Leaving me with 2 sata ports an m.2 port and 2 ram slots for future upgrades, also a little birdy told me the motherboard may accept gen7 cpus and future gpus.

Features

Full HD IPS 1920 x 1080
ANSP™ 3D Sound Technology
Thunderbolt 3.1
Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ MB5
SuperSpeed USB 3.1 Gen 2
Premium Onkyo Speakers
Fingerprint Scanner
HDMI Output Connection
Display Port Connection
Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
Array Microphone Configuration
2.0 MP FHD Webcam
Wireless killer N dual
e-SATA Input Connection

And best of all 3 years parts and labour warranty and 1 year accidental damage insurance for £70. Cheap as chips.

Finaly laptops are catching up with desktops and dont need to be replaced every 2 or 3 years. Just need to figure out what part of my body im going sell to pay for this 12lb bundle of joy.
