CES saw a steady supply of new gaming rigs, tablets, and a new Samsung netbook. Check out all the mobile hardware we loved right in this gallery.

Huawei MediaPad M210

The Huawei MediaPad M2 10 is a 10-inch Android tablet that comes with a stylus.

It comes in a silver model that offers standard fare for a 10-inch tablet today, as well as a gold variant that houses more internal storage and RAM than the silver version.

Origin PC Omni

The Omni all-in-one desktop gaming rig from Origin PC combines extreme customization options and build flexibility with a big-screen all-in-one body, highlighted by a 3,440x1,440-pixel 34-inch curved display.

The base unit is an off-the-shelf chassis, and like many gaming PC builders, Origin PC takes that third-party unit and customizes it with its own components, tweaks, and software to create something unique.


The Omni is coming sometime in the first quarter of 2016. There's no price yet, but we estimate it'll start at around $2,000 in the US.

Samsung Netbook 9

The new Samsung Notebook 9, which comes in 13-inch and 15-inch screen sizes, are constructed of a lightweight magnesium alloy that barely tips the scales.

There is one of those fancy new reversible USB-C ports on the 15-incher, but we're not yet sure if you can charge the laptop using that port.

Razer Blade Stealth

Starting at just $999 this month (that's roughly £685 or AU$1,415), the Stealth comes with high-end components right out of the gate.

Even the basic $999 model fits a super high-definition 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution touchscreen display, a Core i7 processor, 8GB of memory and 128GB of solid-state storage into an incredibly rigid, thin and fairly light 2.75-pound unibody aluminum frame.

Plus, every Stealth comes with the first individually RGB backlit keyboard on a laptop. You can program each and every key to light up in virtually any color you like, or animate in patterns.

Dell Inspiron 11 3000 (2016)

The Dell Inspiron 11 3000 is a colorful plastic budget laptop for $199 and it looks like a worthy competitor to the HP Stream 11 that came out last year.

Don't expect much in the way of grunt: For $199 (or roughly £135 or AU$280, converted), you're looking at a low-performance Intel Celeron processor, only 2GB of memory and 32GB of solid-state storage, and the older, slower 802.11n Wi-Fi standard for your wireless connectivity.

Toshiba dynaPad

At 6.9mm thick and just 1.28 pounds, the dynaPad is among the most travel-friendly of Windows tablets, but you shouldn't expect performance on par with something like the Surface Pro series. Inside is an Intel Atom CPU, along with up to 4GB of RAM. But for drawing and sketching, you may not need much more, especially as the active pen promises Wacom support and 2,048 levels of pressure sensitivity.

The Toshiba dynaPad will be sold through the Microsoft Store starting later in January.

Dell Latitude 12 7275

Dell's new Latitude 12 7275 has a couple of different options for the keyboard half of the hybrid equation.

The Slim Keyboard (yes, that's the name) has full-size, backlit keys, despite being very thin, much like the keyboard cover on a Surface Pro. The Premium Keyboard acts more like a dock than a cover, with deeper keys, a better touchpad and a channel along the back that allow you to slot the tablet half in single-handedly.

The Latitude 12 7275 will be available beginning early February in the United States, starting at $1,049, while the Latitude 13 (7370) will be available March 8, at $1,299.

The Dell 7370 laptop has the same design as the popular XPS 13, but now adds security and an Intel Core M processor.

MSI GT72S Tobii

Join us as we check out the MSI Gaming 27XT desktop. It too supports a discrete desktop-class graphics card, grafted onto the rear of its screen. Origin's Omni ups the ante by cramming an Nvidia Titan X and an octa-core Intel Core i7-5960X into its all-in-one, but MSI's implementation looks like the PC is wearing a funky backpack, and I'm a sucker for flashiness.

There's no word on a price, detailed specifications or a release date, so we'll need to see this one in the flesh to get the rest of the details.

Razer Blade Stealth

Thanks to a clever dock, the stylish Razer Blade Stealth can tap into the power of an external graphics card and charge its battery at the same time. We went hands-on at CES 2016.
