    "Excellent laptop for gaming if you are willing to pay the price. If you are looking into serious gaming this is a contender. The only downfall to this is the fact this is an older model and you are also going to be paying twice the price as what you should. Other options are avaiable for a lower price."

    "It doesn't matter how thin the laptop is when the price is way too high. I wouldn't spend that much on a laptop even if I had the money."

    "They call this dominator and that's what it should do for $2300. It's not bad, but it doesn't dominate. I like that it is fairly thin at just under two inches thick and it's pretty snappy, which is what you need for the high intensive graphics in games today. I'd say it's serviceable, but definitely not dominating."

    "Computer is great for speed and processing but poor on sounds quality. The overall build quality of the computer leaves a lot to be desire when you conisder the price paid. I have seen better options for quite a bit cheaper."

    "I needed a gaming laptop that was on the thin side. Most gaming laptops are really bulky, which I don't like. I found the Origin PC EON17-SLX. This gaming laptop is awesome. It's thin and lightweight and super powerful. It plays all my games with ease. I haven't had any lag or stuttering at all. It's amazingly fast and light. Strongly recommended!"
