The Origin PC EVO 15-S offers some of the best value out of the Max-Q laptops we've tested so far. However, if you're looking for a gaming laptop with a good display, you might want to look elsewhere.
As long as you're not persnickety about your keyboards and always play plugged in, the Origin PC Evo15-S should deliver a great portable gaming experience with a lower-than-average schlep factor.
The Origin PC EVO15-S is a portable, powerful gaming notebook that looks good, feels great, and can actually be used as a laptop.
The Origin EVO15-S packs powerful components in a super slim body that makes it perfect for the gamer on the go. It’s not cheap but you get what you pay for.
You’re really paying for the portable form factor here. If size and weight aren’t big priorities for you, and you’re just looking for something to occasionally lug around to LAN parties, something like the Omen might be more up your alley. HP’s gaming laptop might weigh considerably more at 7.3 pounds, but you can get it with a more powerful GTX 1070 GPU for around $1,800. If you have the money and want good specs in a sleek form factor, however, Origin PC’s EVO15-S should be on your radar.
