The EON17-SLX is CrossFireX and SLI ready, supporting a second GPU to maximize performance. ORIGIN PC customers can choose which graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 7970M or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M), will suit their gaming needs.

What do you guys think? Too much machine? Mobile gaming always comes with a hefty price tag. Having a second high-end GPU will certainly put the cost of this beast over $2,000.

    • Mr. The Plague

      Definitely over $2k which I would never pay for a laptop. I get it's super powerful, but I have no problem packing up my desktop and taking it over to a buddy's house. LAN parties are super fun, especially when you see your rig next to your friend's dinosaur PC.

    • Acid Burn

      I agree with Plague. That's too much for a laptop when you can get a far superior PC for less.
