ORIGIN EON18 gaming notebook packs Core i7 Extreme and dual GPU

There's frankly no shortage of boutique gaming laptop manufacturers who'll happily swap the contents of your wallet (or the limit of your credit card) for a high-powered notebook, and ORIGIN have racked up their newest model, the EON18, as another potential choice.  The EON18 packs Intel's Core i7-920XM Extreme processor paired with up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM, dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M graphics and an 18.4-inch Full HD display.

There's also room for up to three SSDs in optional RAID configurations, as well as a Blu-ray burner.  Custom controls include programmable gaming keys and touch-sensitive shortcuts, and unsurprisingly there's room for a separate numeric keyboard too.

ORIGIN will finish the EON18 in any way you see fit, offering various custom paintjobs and finishes, though don't be surprised if you end up with a very expensive machine in your shopping cart.  The EON18 starts from $2,299, though once you start hitting those options don't be surprised to see $4k-5k approach at great speed.
