"By giving SSD's away for free, they are devaluing them. We dont think this is best for consumers." -Quote from EA's Origin

Ea's Origin is not the same company as Origin PC. Ea's Origin is a content distribution system (like Steam, but run by EA) while Origin PC is a Miami company that was started by ex employee's of Alienware.

clearly the quote was made up and was being sarcastic. And I put EA's origin so people would see the difference. At least one person got it :/

The made-up quote is making fun of this article where Origin(EA) criticizes steam(valve): http://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2012-06-06-david-demartini-origin-wants-to-be-the-hub

Back on topic, the EON11-S starts at $999 with a Pentium B960 2.2Ghz and 2GB GT 650M with 4GB DDR1333 and a 320GB HDD. Seems like a solid machine when they toss in a free 128GB SSD.

I work in sales. Nothing is free, this "free SSD" will be worked into the total cost of the product. And looking at the prices your paying for the SSD, and then some.
