It seems that the era of bulky gaming laptop beasts is over as most PC builders are releasing slim machines that deliver impressive gaming performance in surprisingly svelte form factors. Origin PC and CyberPowerPC are on the bandwagon as both companies are releasing new gaming notebooks.

The Origin PC EVO 15-S weighs 4.36 lbs and measures .79 inches thick and features a 15.6-inch Full HD eDP display (with a 3K option coming soon); under the hood rumbles an Intel Core i7-4710HQ chip and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M 3GB GPU. The storage configuration is tantalizing: it’s comprised of a pair of 128GB SSDs in RAID 0 with a 1TB 7200rpm HDD.

Origin PC EVO 15-S

Other features include 16GB (2 x 8GB) of DDR3L-1600MHz RAM, Killer E2200 Game Networking, Intel dual-band wireless AC 7260, and built-in 720p HD webcam, and ports include three USB 3.0 and a media card reader.

The EVO 15-S starts at $2,199.

CyberPowerPC’s lithe gamer is the Zeusbook Edge X6, which weighs 4.75 pounds and measures 0.82 inches thick. It has a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display and sports an Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor and NVIDIA GTX 870M (6GB) GPU.

CyberPowerPC Zeusbook

One somewhat surprising feature of the Zeusbook is that it has an optical drive, a feature that’s quickly vanishing. Although there are various storage configuration options available including SSDs, the Zeusbook starts with a 1TB HDD. There’s also 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 2.1 Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater speakers, 802.11n WiFi plus Bluetooth, an SD card reader, and two USB 3.0 ports.

The Zeusbook Edge X6-100 starts at $1,389.

Thin gaming laptops are great, but I just wonder how much performance is lost from thermal throttling?

IF you want a mobile powerful device, get a mobile desktop. Laptops/Notebooks are a mess as you can't really "upgrade" them as easily as you could a desktop. Just my opinion. Oh, it you want a Notebook though, take a look at MSI Gaming Notebooks :)

I've just never been a big fan of laptop gaming. Then again I don't do a lot of traveling. I still can never get used to how all of my online buds playing an rpg have to take a break because the laptop needs a reboot or a cool down session. If I'm going to buy a mouse for my laptop I feel I should just stick with the PC, still not used to their keyboards either. With the price tag and comfortability I think I would still just say no to using a gaming laptop.

I like that things are moving this way but the biggest downside to these is the lack of being able to upgrade it myself and still being stuck at 16GB of RAM. I really need a thin laptop that I can run multiple VMs on at the same time and game on until I am done with school and work.

I want to see a thin 17.3 inch notebook with

i7 top of the line processor

32GB of RAM

Dual SSDs Accessible by user for upgrading even if mSATA form factor

a single standard hdd bay

Nvidia 980 GPU
