CES 2020: Razer Tomahawk gaming desktop stays small, powerful thanks to Intel’s NUC 9 Extreme

Razer Tomahawk

We reported the other day on Intel’s new NUC 9 Extreme, the latest Next Unit of Computing kit that allows desktop graphics cards to be used as part of it for the first time. It can work with the modular Compute Element to make swapping components in and out of a small form factor chassis easier. While Intel is prepping its Ghost Canyon NUC complete with a skull-adorned case, other manufacturers are free to build their own mini-desktops around the NUC concept.

Enter Razer, the gaming hardware company that graduated from producing controllers and other peripherals to also offering well-designed full-fledged PC systems. Though it’s had more success with laptops like the Blade family, it’s tackling the desktop realm with the Tomahawk, which will come as both a full PC as well as a standalone chassis. The Tomahawk will make use of the NUC 9 Extreme, but as is typical with Razer, it will deliver its own innovative design touches.

For starters, Razer forges the Tomahawk from aluminum with its sides crafted from tempered glass, allowing you to see the vertically mounted GPU like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080. Cooling is facilitated by a vent at the top of the case, while the rear of the chassis opens up to allow the Compute Module to slide in and out. It still retains a compact footprint, however, sized in the neighborhood of the proverbial breadbox.

In addition to a full-sized graphics card, the Tomahawk can be configured with up to a Core i9 CPU and 64GB of RAM. Connectivity includes a pair of Thunderbolt 2 and HDMI ports and a half-dozen USB 3 ports. Thanks to the modular nature of the Compute Element, many components can be upgraded with ease. If you really want to build a system completely, Razer will be releasing the Tomahawk in a chassis-only version dubbed the Tomahawk N1.

Razer has announced that the Tomahawk Gaming desktop will be available sometime in the first half of 2020, but no pricing details were disclosed. Given Razer’s previous offerings, expect to pay a premium.

CES 2020: Intel launches NUC 9 Extreme, NUC 9 Pro Workstation mini-PC kits

intel-nuc-9-extreme-ghost-canyon-ces-2020.jpg

Intel NUC 9 Extreme 

Among the various forthcoming technologies and new products it presented in its CES keynote, Intel also presented its latest Next Unit of Computing (NUC) kits, which promise the best performance options that the mini-PCs have offered to date. In addition to a version that finally provides desktop-level gaming prowess in a NUC, there’s also a workstation edition available for the first time.

With the skull design on the side of its tiny chassis, the NUC 9 Extreme — also known as the Ghost Canyon NUC — is a successor to Skull Canyon and Hades Canyon NUCs. While those emphasized higher performance than what is typically expected from a small form factor PC, Ghost Canyon does them better in a number of ways. Intel says the NUC 9 Extreme is the first NUC that can accept desktop-sized graphics cards, thanks to a PCIe x16 slot, and comes equipped with a Core i9 processor, including an option for an unlocked version.

As is the case with all NUCs, the Ghost Canyon model includes the processor, but leaves the rest to the user (or third-party vendors building systems from the kit), who needs to supply RAM, storage, and discrete graphics to the unit. That can be made easier with the optional Compute Element, a more convenient, modular way to swap components in and out of the NUC. Other features supplied with the NUC 9 Extreme include a 500-watt power supply, built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a pair of Thunderbolt ports and a HDMI 2.0a port. Though it can only accept graphics cards up to 8 inches in length, the Ghost Canyon NUC only takes up a mere 9.4×8.5×3.8 inches.

While clearly not as sexy as the Ghost Canyon edition, the NUC 9 Pro is notable for being the first workstation class NUC kit Intel has produced. It resembles the 9 Extreme NUC in a number of ways (500-watt power supply, support for desktop graphics cards, similar connectivity options), but rather than coming with Core i9 CPUs, the 9 Pro will be available with either a Core i7-9850H vPro or a Xeon E-2286M processor option. Other workstation-level features include support for Intel’s Active Management Technology and Trusted Platform Module (TPM) inclusion.

Intel has provided no specific pricing or availability details yet for the latest NUCs, but given that you’re getting legitimate desktop PC power in a device that can fit in your bag, expect to pay a pretty penny when they are finally released.

CES 2020: NEC comes back to the U.S. with new LaVie laptops, all-in-one PC

nec-lavie-laptops-notebooks-pc-ces-2020.jpg

NEC LaVie Home All-in-One

LaVie Z ultra-lightweight notebookOnce a fixture among the U.S. business laptop market, NEC bailed out of American retail a few years ago, choosing to concentrate on its home Japanese market instead. But as the new decade begins, NEC Personal Computers — a joint venture between NEC Corp. and Lenovo that’s been producing PCs since 2011 — has decided to venture once again into the U.S. marketplace with a trio of new systems.

The last time NEC launched a new PC for American buyers at CES was in 2015, when it rolled out the LaVie Z ultra-lightweight notebook. Flash forward five years, and it’s back with the LaVie brand. This time around, the laptops are called the Pro Mobile and the Vega, both sleekly designed and with premium price tags.

At under 2 pounds and just 0.62 inches thick, the Pro Mobile puts an emphasis on the mobile, thanks to materials like racing-car grade carbon fiber and magnesium lithium alloy. Despite the extreme portability, the Pro Mobile doesn’t compromise performance, squeezing in an Intel Core i7-8565U quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB solid-state drive, and a 13.3-inch full HD display into its Bordeaux colored chassis. At a $1,600 starting price, the Pro Mobile isn’t compromising on price, either.

That’s even more apparent with the Vega, which starts at $500 more than the Pro Mobile and is bigger and heavier (4 pounds) due in part to its larger 15.6-inch display. For the additional cost, you get increased performance from the beefier i7-9750H six-core CPU and the 32GB of Intel Optane memory, along with increased resolution from the 4K OLED screen. Other premium specs include Yamaha stereo speakers, two Thunderbolt ports, and Gorilla Glass back cover.

Keeping with the luxury pricing of the NEC laptops, the LaVie Home all-in-one PC is in the same range of an iMac rather than most Windows all-in-ones. Centered around a 27-inch full HD white screen, the LaVie Home features a Core i7-10510U processor, 8GB of RAM, a 3TB hard drive and 256GB SSD, and even a DVD rewritable drive. One thing it lacks is touchscreen functionality, which you might expect from a system costing $1,800. As with the laptops, the LaVie Home will be available starting in March.

CES 2020: Lenovo debuting Yoga Creator 7, IdeaPad Creator 5 laptops, IdeaCentre Creator 5 desktop

lenovo-yoga-creator-7-laptop-notebook-ces-2020.png

Lenovo Yoga Creator 7

In addition to announcing a new personal business communications device and a pair of 27-inch LCD monitors, Lenovo is using CES 2020 to introduce additions to its Creator line of PCs. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the two new laptop will see limited availability, and the new desktop won’t be released into well into this year.

Lenovo is launching the Yoga Creator 7 and IdeaPad Creator 5 laptops to tap into the market for on-the-go digital content creation (not to be confused with MSI’s own Creator laptop), but the company has already stated that neither will be coming to North America. For the rest of the world, the new Yoga is built around a 15.6-inch full HD display with optional 100-percent sRGB color gamut support. It will include 10th-generation Intel Core processors, up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of solid-state storage, and the “latest” (and unspecified) Nvidia mobile graphics.

Several ounces heavier (4.8 pounds versus 4.2 pounds), the IdeaPad Creator 5 has a similar sized screen and screen resolution, though its color gamut option is 100-percent Adobe RGB instead of sRGB. It likewise will offer 10th-gen Core CPUs and new Nvidia graphics, but it’s a little thicker than the Yoga and is equipped with a smaller battery (8 hours versus 13 hours). Both systems have Lenovo Q-Control and Intelligent Cooling technology to boost performance while keeping things cool when needed for the most demanding tasks. They also come with a dark moss chassis that’s different from the black and gray laptops of the world without being too ostentatious.

The IdeaCentre Creator 5 keeps that color scheme for its case, along with a bit of a geometric design to make it stand out from the average desktop tower. More than just flair, Lenovo claims the case design aids in cooling and quieting the PC, which can be equipped with up to the latest Core i9 processors and Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics cards as well as up to 32GB of RAM and 2 terabytes of hard drive space and a terabyte of solid-state storage. The IdeaCentre is Independent Software Vendor certified to ensure content creation software runs optimally, and the PC maker includes its Lenovo Vantage dashboard to complement the Windows 10 experience.

Unlike the new Creator laptops, Lenovo is planning to offer the IdeaCentre Creator 5 in North America, though you’ll have plenty of time to save up for its $1,099.99 starting price. That’s because it’s not expected to go on sale until October.

CES 2020: Avita readies new colorful Admiror, Pura laptop lines

avita-admiror-laptop-notebook-ces-2020

Avita Admiror

Avita is the consumer laptop brand of Hong Kong-based Nexstgo, which decided to enter the U.S. laptop market this year with cheap, colorful models like the Clarus and Liber, the latter of which ZDNet’s Eileen Brown favorably reviewed a couple of months ago. With its two newest families, it launches itself into a higher echelon of performance while maintaining its rainbow of chassis choices.

Avita plans to introduce the Admiror and Pura lines to the larger world during next month’s CES, though the notebooks are already for sale in the company’s home market. In its press release, Avita emphasizes the design bonafides of the new systems, while providing little information about the specs. Luckily, the Hong Kong version of the brand’s website fills in some of those details for us.

While the Clarus was a low-price, low-performance machine, the Liber was a step up. The Pura family continues that midrange approach, offering Intel Core i3-8145U or Core i5–8265U processor options, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB SSDs. The 14-inch display features 1,920×1,080 full HD resolution, and the Pura is available in hue’s hue of color choices, including two different shades of pink. One downside is that it loads Windows 10 S mode by default, forcing those looking for the full Windows 10 experience to workarounds (or to look at another laptop). 

With the Admiror, Avita takes on more luxurious laptops, starting with an all-metal chassis that the company claims — apparently not with tongue in cheek — to take inspiration from both high fashion and Gothic architecture. In addition to its admittedly good looks, the Admiror line offers either a Core i5 or Core i7 CPU running the full version of Windows 10, though it offers similar memory and storage options as the Pura line. It will come in either 14-inch or 15.6-inch sizes, with 4K and touchscreen options promised in the future. One thing the Admiror offers less of than its siblings is in the color department, providing “only” five choices although none is black, white or gray.

Though Avita hasn’t mentioned pricing or availability yet, the current starting price for the Admiror line in Hong Kong is close to the equivalent of $900. As with their predecessors, the Pura and Admiror laptops will be available via Amazon.com as well as Avita’s American website.

CES 2020: MSI announces latest Creator 17 laptop will be world’s first with mini-LED display

msi-creator-17.jpg

MSI Creator 17 laptop

While not as radical an improvement as MicroLED technology, mini-LED is a definite step up from the current LED implementation, as tinier LEDs can be crammed into the display backlighting to improve viewing brightness and contrast. As you might guess, mini-LEDs are making their first mark into the HDTV world, with TCL recently releasing the first sets using the technology. But the mobile computing market isn’t far behind, based on the latest announcement from manufacturer MSI.

In advance of CES 2020, the company is introducing a new version of its Creator 17 laptop that will be the first to use mini-LED technology for its screen. MSI claims that the display will feature a brightness of 1,000 nits, far superior to even the brightest consumer laptops if its claims come to fruition. It will also provide 240 zones of local dimming, which allows for better contrast with whiter white and darker black levels.

As a result, MSI says the new Creator 17 is the only notebook that can meet the DisplayHDR 1000 tier of VESA’s DisplayHDR spec, another factor that will aid the digital content creators who are the market for this laptop. Not surprisingly, the Creator 17’s mini-LED display also features 4K resolution and support for 100% DCI-P3 color gamut as well as the Display P3 color space.

In terms of other specs, MSI won’t divulge many details, saying instead that it will offer “the latest in CPU and GPU processing power.” The new Creator 17 will include a USB Type-C port that’s capable of outputting 8K video to an external display, along with a Thunderbolt port powerful enough to handle mobile charging duties. It also comes with what MSI says is the world’s fastest UHS-III SD card reader. As for the rest, including pricing and availability info, we’ll have to wait for CES next month to learn more.

Cyber Monday 2019: Top Best Buy deals

best-buy-cyber-monday-2019-deals-ad-sales-laptops-desktops-tablets-apple.jpg

Best Buy’s Black Friday ad is always one of the most anticipated of the holiday shopping season, and one pleasant surprise with its release this year is that many of the deals are already available, a sign that online shopping continues to erode the “magic” of Black Fridays past when people trampled each other to get to doorbuster specials before they ran out. We’ve covered Best Buy’s Black Friday Apple deals elsewhere, but below are a number of other sales that caught our eye.

Cyber Monday 2019: Best Best Buy deals

1.jpg

HP 14-DB0023DX Chromebook Laptop for $119.99

Best Buy sold a Samsung Chromebook for $90 on Black Friday, but this pricier Cyber Monday special might be a better deal. It has a bigger 14-inch display, uses a better processor (AMD A4), and offers more RAM (4GB) and storage (32GB) for just $30 more.

2.jpg

Lenovo IdeaPad S145 Laptop for $179.99

Best Buy has a fewer sub-$200 Windows laptop Cyber Monday deals, but this one gives you much more storage and a bigger display for just a smidge more money. Specifically, you get a 500GB hard drive instead of a 64GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch dscreen instead of a 14-inch or 11.6-inch one. This IdeaPad S145 also features an AMD A6 processor and 4 gigs of RAM.  

3.jpg

Microsoft Surface Go for $299

If you really want to get a Surface device, this is about the cheapest way to get a new one. Granted, the Go is the least powerful Microsoft tablet, and this deal doesn’t include any accessories that could aid productivity. Nonetheless, you still get a 10-inch 1,800×1,200 touchscreen, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage, and an Intel Pentium Gold 4415 Y processor for under $300.

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch Laptop for $1,099.99

If you’d rather save money than get a gift card, Best Buy’s a better place to grab this base MacBook Pro than an Apple Store. You’ll get the latest version — Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, 13-inch Retina display with Touch Bar — for nearly $200 less than purchasing it directly through Apple.

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg

CyberPowerPC Gamer Master Gaming Desktop for $479.99

A gaming PC for under $500? It might not be the most powerful — the AMD Ryzen 3 2300X processor may be minimally viable — but you also get Radeon RX graphics, 8GB of RAM, and both a terabyte hard drive and 240GB SSD. AMD even throws in three free months of Xbox Game Pass for PC to seal the deal.

2019-11-01-at-2-59-43-pm.jpg

Acer Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop for $549.99

This Cyber Monday deal has everything a gamer on a budget is looking for. It features an Intel i5-9300H quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM, a speedy 256GB solid-state drive, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. A full HD 15.6-inch display rounds things out on a system that still manages to weigh under 5 pounds.

More Office Depot and OfficeMax Black Friday 2019 deals

As always, Dell has plenty of other deals as part of its Black Friday promotion in addition to the ones highlighted above. Here are several other specials.

  • Acer CB3-532-108H Chromebook (Intel Atom x5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16GB SSD, 15.6-inch screen) for $159 off)

Cyber Monday 2019: Best Office Depot and OfficeMax deals

2019-11-01-at-3-03-18-pm.jpg

The Cyber Monday ad for these merged office superstore chains doesn’t offer as many deals on laptops and desktops as their Black Friday ad, which is not entirely surprising given their continued (if shrinking) brick-and-mortar presence. Nonetheless, there are still plenty of specials available from Office Depot and OfficeMax if you didn’t buy a PC over the Black Friday weekend, including these highlights:

Cyber Monday 2019: Best Office Depot and OfficeMax deals

1.jpg

HP Chromebook 14-db0070nr Touchscreen Laptop for $229.99

No $100 Chromebook deal like Office Depot and OfficeMax promoted on Black Friday, this Cyber Monday special is for buyers who need something bigger than a 11.6-inch screen that the cheapest Chromebooks offer. This HP includes not only a 14-inch display, but also one with touchscreen capabilities. An AMD A4 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage round out this Chromebook’s specs.

2.jpg

Lenovo IdeaPad 130 Laptop for $249.99

If you prefer a Windows 10 system instead of a Chromebook, this Lenovo deal is only $20 more than the HP one above, but you get a faster processor (AMD A6), more storage (500GB hard drive), and a bigger screen (15.6 inches). You do lose the touchscreen, however, though it may not be as much of a selling point on these conventional clamshell-design notebooks.  

3.jpg

Dell Inspiron 3475 All-In-One PC for $449.99

Along with the white color scheme, the main selling point for this all-in-one desktop is a large 23.8-inch full HD display. Inside it, you’ll find an AMD A9 processor, 8GB of memory, and a 256GB solid-state drive.  

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg

Lenovo Flex 15 2-in-1 Laptop for $549.99

If you want a convertible laptop with some power at a decent price, this Lenovo Flex deal features an Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 15.6-inch full HD touchscreen. Those concerned about security will also appreciate the built-in fingerprint reader and the shutter to close the notebook’s webcam.

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg

HP Pavilion TP01-0066 Desktop for $549.99

While a little short on storage (just a 256GB SSD), this HP desktop makes up for it with an AMD Ryzen 7 processor and Radeon RX 550 graphics. The tower form factor means there’s room to add more storage if you need it, but it may be harder to replace the processing and graphics power for the price.

2019-11-01-at-2-59-43-pm.jpg

Asus TUF Gaming Laptop for $799.99

This gaming notebook checks all of the boxes for gamers on a budget. This online-only deal comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor, 8 gigs of RAM, a 512GB solid-state drive, and a 15.6-inch full HD display. Capping things off is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card to power your gaming on the go.

More Office Depot and OfficeMax Cyber Monday 2019 deals

Didn’t see what you wanted? Here are several more deals on laptops and desktops that might be right for you.

While the Microsoft Store hasn’t yet released an actual Black Friday ad (or had one leak), it does have a preview of several deals on its site. 

Also: More Black Friday coverage at CNET

As you might expect, price cuts on the company’s own Surface devices lead the way, along with several sales on Windows laptops. We’ll update this space if new deals emerge, but for the now, here are the highlights Microsoft is touting for Black Friday.

Black Friday 2019: Best Microsoft deals

Disclosure: ZDNet may earn a commission from some of the products featured on this page.

Microsoft Surface Go for $299 ($100 off)

The cheapest route to the Surface world, the base model Go is a 10-inch tablet running Windows 10S via an Intel Pentium 4415Y processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid-state drive. Though it’s even cheaper with $100 off for Black Friday, the Surface Go still has premium touches like Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and 1,800×1,200 resolution for the touchscreen display.

2019-11-01-at-2-59-43-pm.jpg

Microsoft Platinum Surface Pro 7 with Type Cover Bundle for $649 ($230 off)

With this deal, Microsoft matches the Black Friday Best Buy has been advertising on the base Surface Pro 7. It includes an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD, and a 12.3-inch 2,736×1,824 touchscreen display, along with a type cover that turns it from a tablet to a convertible laptop.

2.jpg

You can score a 15.6-inch laptop with the latest 10th-generation Intel Core i3-1005G1 processor for under $300 with this deal. It also includes 8 gigs of RAM and 128GB solid-state drive and is set up to run Windows 10 in S mode to extend battery life, though you can convert the full version of Windows 10 for free.

2019-11-01-at-3-03-18-pm.jpg

HP 15-dy1771ms Laptop for $499 ($200 off)

If you need more power than the above HP provides, this deal slashes $200 off the price of a laptop with a 10th-generation Core i7-1065G7 instead of a Core i3 chip. You still get 8GB of memory and a 15.6-inch screen, but the solid-state storage is quadrupled to 512GB.  

3.jpg

Lenovo Legion Y540 15 Gaming Laptop for $789.99 ($400 off)

It seems like nearly every retailer offering Black Friday deals on PCs has a couple of gaming laptops on sale. In Microsoft’s case, it has a pair that come in under $1,000 for gamers watching their budget. The Lenovo Legion Y540 packs an Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 8GB of RAM, and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, along with a 15.6-inch full HD display and generous storage offerings of both a 512GB SSD and a terabyte hard drive.

Asus ROG Strix G Gaming Laptop for $899.99 ($300 off)

Your other affordable gaming laptop choice from Microsoft’s Black Friday deals has storage on board (just a 256GB SSD), but it doubles the amount of RAM to 16GB. The Asus otherwise uses the same processor and graphics card, while providing a similarly sized Full HD screen.

Tech lovers know Newegg as one of the leading online retailers for computers and components, so their Black Friday ad should be of interest to PC buyers. 

Also: More Black Friday coverage

As expected, there are numerous deals on computer parts, but those looking for readymade systems have plenty to choose from as well, as the following Black Friday specials make clear.

When is Newegg’s Black Friday 2019 sale?

Like many retailers, Newegg is offering deals on tech and gadgets throughout the month of November and December, but its official Black Friday 2019 sale does not start until Nov. 25. And it will last until Nov. 30. 

Black Friday 2019: Best Newegg deals

If these deals aren’t yet available, they will be when Newegg’s Black Friday sale goes live.

Portal Mini from Facebook for $79 ($50 off)

Newegg is slashing $50 off the price of Facebook’s recently released smart device, which combines a camera that can pan and zoom automatically with an 8-inch display to allow you to make video calls via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant is built in to turn this into more than just a glorified webcam, answering voice commands and able to control compatible smart devices around the house.

2019-11-01-at-2-59-43-pm.jpg

Lenovo 100e Chromebook for $100 ($88 off)

Newegg gives us a different sub-$100 Chromebook deal than the Samsung one that we’ve seen from other retailers. The 100e also comes with 4GB of RAM rather than the 2 gigs these other Chromebook specials typically offer, though other specs are comparable (16GB of built-in storage, MTK MT8173C processor, 11.6-inch display).

2.jpg

ABS Rogue SE Gaming Desktop for $525 ($225 off)

Perfect for a gamer on a budget who doesn’t need a neon light show emanating from every part of their rig, the understated Rogue SE comes with an AMD Ryzen 5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a 512GB solid-state drive. The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 video card provides the graphics punch on the gaming front.

2019-11-01-at-3-03-18-pm.jpg

Acer Aspire 5 Laptop for $600

This Acer notebook is a solid midrange choice, especially at this price. It features an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, 8 gigs of RAM, a 512GB solid-state drive, and Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics. Throw in a 15.6-inch full HD display, and you have yourself a good deal.  

3.jpg

Asus GL10CS Gaming Desktop PC for $770 ($220 off)

If you need a little more oomph (and slightly more design flair) from a gaming desktop than the ABS mentioned above, this Asus delivers better specs for not much more than the Rogue SE. It packs a ninth-generation six-core Core i5-9400F instead of an eighth-generation one, and boosts the graphics prowess with a faster GeForce GTX 1660 card while matching the 8GB of RAM and 512GB SSD of the ABS.

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg

MSI GL65 9SC-004 Gaming Laptop for $600 ($199 off)

2019-11-01-at-3-22-47-pm.jpg
