If you'd waved a tape measure at Origin's brawny EOS-17X gaming laptop last year, your fingers would fall at the 2.15-inch mark. Sufficiently shamed by that statistic, the company has put the hardware on a diet, slimming down the hardware to a much more svelte 1.52 inches. Of course, that's not the only change, since Origin has also upgraded the internals to include Intel's Z97 chipset, as well as add the ability to overclock the hardware.

Naturally, build-to-order options are the standard here, with both the 15.6-inch EON-15X and the 17.3-inch EON-17X capable of supporting an Intel Core i7-4790K, up to 32GB RAM and NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 980M with 8GB RAM. You'll also be able to cram in 4TB of storage, split among M.2 SATA, SSD or traditional HDD options, not to mention the ability to hook up an external 4K display.

At the same time, the company is also whipping out a refreshed EON15-S, a (comparatively) super-slim unit that's just 1.13 inches thick and weighs in at 5.5 pounds, a drop of around 36 percent compared to the previous generation. In addition to the 15.6-inch HD display, the unit comes with a Core i7-4720HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 980M with 4GB RAM. You'll be able to order all of the units from today, with prices entirely contingent on what specs you need for your next LAN party.
