So is the EON 11-S a keeper for ultra-mobile media creators? Yes, with a few accommodations. This particular custom build definitely has the performance and connectivity to match, but favors it over the mobile experience. The 11-S packs a serious punch for both work and play in such a small package, but with its size and visibility, Origin PC should market this model as a robust ultralight rather than a gaming laptop. Sure, they can fit strong hardware inside to support the latest games and apps, but the gamers and power users who could benefit from this form factor would be a very niche audience (myself included).
Origin PC also builds EON 15 and 17-inch gaming laptops that have the same, if not more hardware expandability than the 11-S. These models would be better options for those who want serious gaming on the go, on screen sizes that are more comfortable for many hours of use. Combine that with their lifetime customer support and meticulous quality assurance testing, and you’ll see that the engineers at Origin PC are passionate about their work.
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our EON 11-S review, where our lab manager, Anshel Sag, will dig even deeper into the EON 11-S and run a broad series of benchmarks and games to help quantify the performance that we talked about during this review.
