By far the best custom, performance PC company left!
To provide a little background, I have long built my own PCs and make them high performance, all the way back to the 286 & 386 days. I continued up until the AMD processors and Intel were neck to neck and overclocking and really high end systems. Now that I am older, I do not have the time to tune the machines so I stared buying from Alienware, but once Dell bought them they became just another company, no real difference from Dell. I then tried two major competitors of Origin- ibuypower & Xidax, both of these do not even come close as to how well Origin did! First off the PC itself is a work of art! the system was well build, and whenever I see a system boot into windows with a welcome PDF with all the contact information and a greeting to me by name, I know they tuned it in windows and not just BIOS! their two competitors just tune in bios and let the user deal with tons of windows performance issues (drivers, etc). Origin did no such thing! So far I have asked for support for some minor things and get answers within 6 hours so the customer support is legendary for sure! these other companies do not care about the customer much after you have paid and taken delivery of the unit. Not to mention the wooden crate and outstanding warranty and support plans this company is as far as I am concerned, the last standing true, performance PC maker, treating their customer like alienware used to before they were acquired. Kudos all the way around to Origin! they have my business now and moving forward! Patrick

Freedom of Choice
A good degree of effort is put into making the machines. They don't just churn them out as many manufacturers do, and hardware options are chosen such that they offer support for a wide range of operating systems (even server OS's). A very positive note given how PC purchasing nowadays works with most manufacturers is that you have a lot of freedom of choice when buying. Furthermore, there is no difference between gaming and professional laptops other than the recommended hardware options, which are completely in your control. As a result, you are free to float between both purposes in your selection and not face a product that is divided among purposes.

After shopping around for a new gaming laptop, I eventually settled on the EVO-15S from OriginPC. It hit that sweet spot of price and performance, and I love playing games on it or using it for software development. Though I have to say that OriginPC's website could use a little work -- I had trouble with my shopping cart and had to try at least three time before my order went through. But that's a minor nag. I was able to contact customer service via email and get everything sorted out quickly. I'd definitely recommend OriginPC's systems to friends.

This laptop is the epitome of a desktop replacement
Ordering was a breeze. Bryant did a great job helping process my order and Erika made sure to keep me updated through every step of the process, even ensuring that my laptop arrived and functioned perfectly! This laptop is the epitome of a desktop replacement. The quality of the laptop is better than I expected. Running new games on Ultra hardly even phases my laptop as it stays cool and quiet. The speakers are almost too good, filling my room with quality audio while I only have them set to 20%. Streaming is insanely easy, the built-in microphone and webcam have good enough quality and raise no complaints from my viewers. This is the laptop you need if you want to game, edit, or stream from anywhere

They surpassed any expectation I had
"Extremely fast shipping, they ship your PC in a wooden crate for safety. They surpassed any expectation I had and even their own. I was on the phone with a rep at 3 am their time helping me set up and make sure everything functioned properly after set up. I will shop here in the future and will HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for anything computer related!"
