Origin PC follows trend with its 11-inch, rebadged gaming laptop, reveals the new EON 11-5
Although last week has come to and end, the overload of Clevo news carries on. Right after Maingear announcing an 11-inch gaming notebook, Origin PC is throwing its own ultraportable into the ring: the EON 11-S. Though this is a new model for the company , actually the smallest laptop it has ever sold, it is not anything new to us: this is the same exact Clevo-made notebook Maingear unveiled two days ago, only re-badged under Origin PC's brand and available in a wider range of colors. As far as performance goes, then, that means you can expect Ivy Bridge processors, a 2GB NVIDIA GT 650M GPU, Optimus graphics-switching technology and a battery rated for 6.5 hours of runtime. When it comes to the Origin PC, the laptop starts at a price of $999 which is much less pricey than that of Maingear which is priced at $1,099. But you may have to go over to Origin’s official website to be informed in detail of the specs you will be receiving at that relatively lower cost. Just so you are not faced with any surprises; if you add an Ivy Bridge CPU, this will increase the price to $1,294.
