Having a laptop simply for gaming might seem a little bit extravagant to say the very least, but the folks over at Origin PC might disagree with that especially as they have launched a high spec laptop aimed at gamers and with a starting price under $1000!
Naturally the base version of this laptop is not going to be all gamers first choice, but there is a whole host of features and options to choose from to make the machine more suitable to their gaming requirements, obviously this is going to push the price up, but never the less this is an affordable gaming laptop still.
The Origin PC EON 11-S gaming laptop comes with an 11.6 inch high definition 16:9 Aspect Ratio display with a 1366 x 768 of pixel resolutions and comes with a 1.3 mega pixel web camera and microphone built into the frame.

Depending on the processor chosen there is a choice of graphics cards too, from the Intel HD Graphics or the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.
