Pwnage: Origin’s New EON17-S Laptop Has 4.5GHz Processor Option

Holy pwnage. Oh, my. Oh, wow. The mad engineers and technicians at Origin have unveiled their latest monster of a laptop, the EON 17-S. What is so amazing about the EON17-S? Well, besides the price that will break your credit card by the power of 2, there’s several overclocked (and covered with warranties) i5 and i7 Intel Sandy Bridge processor options, up to a 2GB Nvidia GTX 485M GPU, 32GB of dual-channel RAM, and 480GB OCZ solid state drive. If you actually have the funds to buy an EON17-S, then I’ll let you know that it ships in mid-May.

That’ssssss a nice laptop you’ve got, Origin. Press release after the jump.

Breffo Spiderpodium Tablet Review: It’s A Useful Arthropod

As an iPad 2 owner, the Spiderpodium tablet is incredibly useful (and can even be deemed as protection despite not covering the back or front of the device in any way). Review past the jump.
