From ridiculous gaming rigs to sleek tablets to robots that could play chess, there was lots on offer at Asia's biggest tech show. Here's the best of what CNET saw in Taipei, Taiwan this year.

Check out the rest of CNET's Computex coverage here.

The ZenBook Flip S is the world's thinnest convertible. The 13.3-inch, 4K display has four modes, a fingerprint scanner, Asus Stylus compatibility and an Intel core i7 processor. Oh, and it's only 10.9mm (0.4 inches) thick.

Samsung's S Pen would be familiar to Galaxy Note nuts, but the Notebook 9 is the first time they've bundled it with a 2-in-1. The Notebook 9 also packs in a stunning full-HD touchscreen display, Windows Ink compatibility and 360-degree hinges.

Nvidia's Max-Q design architecture means slim, superpowered gaming laptops. The Asus ROG Zephyrus debuted here at Computex in Taipei, and it's hiding a GTX 1080 inside a 17.9mm frame. In addition to being equipped with the biggest GPU possible, it has other cool features like a trackpad that doubles as a numpad.

Three words: Wireless. Charging. Mousepad. Corsair had their usual array of hardware, but the coolest thing on offer was this mousepad and mouse equipped with Qi wireless charging. Never again will you forget to dock your wireless mouse at the end of a long day.

Okay, so keyboard switches don't sound revolutionary. But given that they're waterproof, totally removable and able to measure how much pressure you hold them down with, the Flaretech switches are set to change gaming keyboards everywhere.

The bigger of the two all-in-ones shown off by Dell at Computex 2017, the Inspiron 27 7000 is a very impressive easel-style chassis with an ultra-slim bezel and discrete graphics behind the hood. More power while keeping things consumer-friendly was a running theme at the show, and the Inspiron range was one of the best examples.

Launching on Indiegogo last year, this tablet might just look like a Microsoft Surface clone, but what it really is, is... well, a Surface clone. But it's a damn good one with a low entry-level price.

$799.00 MSRP

The GT75VR has one simple goal: Dispel the myth that desktop power is out of reach for laptops. Based on the benchmarking data MSI was showing off, raw graphics power and revolutionary new cooling systems, this beast of a gaming laptop is closing that gap.

At a show where everything was looking to go bigger, I was a fan of HyperX's Alloy FPS Pro keyboard. Trimming down from the already minimalist Alloy FPS by cutting the numpad from the steel base, you're left with a sleek, portable (and very cheap) mechanical keyboard.

Wireless VR headsets are going to be a game changer. Once we can leave behind the tangle of wires, the virtual sky is the limit. Even though it was just a prototype Intel showed off on stage, the HTC Vive WiGig is a promising step down that path. Stay tuned for more of the WiGig at E3 in a couple of weeks.

The Vagenie is a connected device for strengthening the pelvic floor. Yes, it's strange. But if you want to gamify your Kegel routine, you know where to look.

Comptuex supports an amazing culture for PC case mods, and we saw some seriously excellent ones this year. Here's an H.R. Giger-inspired PC tower.

We played chess against a robot. The robot won. This is AlphaGo all over again.

Intel was showing off a super-expensive, super-powerful 18-core chip that will redefine computer multitasking.

Wireless charging might be the new hotness, but what about contactless charging? This train used infrared beams to power itself around the tracks.

These smart gloves can translate hand movements into A-OK text. We went hands-on with them (sorry) at Computex.
