OriginPC is leveling up its Thin and Light series to Core i9s, but how thin and light are they exactly?
OriginPC’s site unveiled on Wednesday that it’s outfitting the EVO17-S and EON15-S gaming laptops with a hexacore Intel Core i9-8950HK processor into their barely 1-inch chassis’. The EON15-S is the most notable due to its weight, which is approximately 3.4 pounds. It also comes with up to a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of VRAM.
However, the Core i9 isn’t available for that system just yet. The EVO17-S can be configured with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 GPU with 8GB of VRAM, but it is a little weighty at 6.6 pounds. The EON15-S and EVO17-S start at $1,449 and $1,999, respectively.
Workstation lovers will feel the heat too, as the NT-17, NS-15S and NT-15 Quadro are getting the same treatment. All three of these workstations are also under 1-inch thick as well, and the NS-15S (up to a GTX 1060 6GB) has the same light 3.4 pounds that the EON15-S does.
The NT-15 Quadro actually isn’t too far off at 4.3 pounds, and its maxed out GPU is a Quadro P4000 Max-Q 8GB. Like the EVO17-S, the NT-17 weighs 6.6 pounds and is able to fit a GTX 1070 8GB inside of it.
