Origin PC offers new design for gaming PC laptop

With all of the PC talk at CES 2012 centering on thin-and-light ultrabooks it was good to hear some news about PCs that were all about bringing the best gaming PC performance for users. On Tuesday, Origin PC made a number of announcements, including a redesign of its EON17-S and EON15-S gaming PC laptops. As you can see in the above picture, the lid of the laptops have a harder edge design compared to the laptops' previous flat case. The new design will be offered for sale later in the first quarter of 2012.

The second big announcement was a new cooling system for Origin PC's Genesis gaming PC desktop. Origin PC claims that the desktop's new Phase Change cooling system can cut the heat of a PC processor down to as low as - 40 degrees Celsius. That kind of cooling system can let Origin PC overclock a PC processor up to as high as 5.7 GHz. The Genesis desktop will start shipping with the new cooling system later in the first quarter.

Finally, Origin PC revealed that starting immediately it would offer its customers free lifetime 24/7 phone and online technical support for its laptops and desktops. The deal includes current users of Origin PC products.

Oh wow.... now a laptop that really serves as desktop with full cooling solution, at last.

The new cooling solution is for their desktop PCs only.

This cooling system sounds interesting. I wonder how exactly it works...

It's basically putting a refrigerator in there. Dielectric liquid evaporates taking heat from whatever is cooking, flows towards the compressor that forces it back to liquid state instead of relying on ambient temperatures to do so.
Calling it "phase change" is more of a marketing term, sounds very cool and all. Phase change actually occurs in common hollow heatpipes, too. In this case, however, it's forced and therefore superior.

It's a variant of the long-extant Peltier cooling system (a type of phase-change) which has been available as an option (and an expensive one) for boutique desktops. It cools MUCH better than traditional water-based liquid cooling (which is not as pricey as phase-change has been, and also doesn't require special licensing, as most non-water-based liquid cooling - such as liquid nitrogen - does). The price tag will be the real issue - especially when compared to *traditional* water-based liquid cooling.

The new design will be offered for sale later in the first quarter of 2011.

My time machine worked!

Hadn't heard of the company before but their machines look pretty good
