Our best-in-show picks include some of the top gear PC enthusiasts can buy in 2019, and a glance at what personal computing will look like in 2020 and beyond.
MSI GT76 Titan
Best Gaming Laptop
MSI's new flagship Titan, the GT76, is a gaming boss with a desktop-class Intel Core i9 CPU. This time MSI is dropping the mechanical switches in favor of a slimmer, thin-bezel design while keeping the presumptive performance wallop. In addition to the Core i9, the top-end config also includes an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 (the full-strength item, no Max-Q here), and 128GB of memory.
Asus ZenBook Pro Duo
With its new ZenBook Pro Duo, Asus is thinking about dual-screen laptops in a whole new way. The company has essentially plastered every available square inch of the inside of the ZenBook Pro Duo with a touch screen. There's a 14-inch 4K OLED touch display where laptop screens typically go, and then there's another 14-inch-wide display above the keyboard. In fact, you might think of ZenBook Pro Duo as just one giant screen with a small gap in the middle and a keyboard below. And with up to an Intel Core i9 and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 inside, this laptop is equal parts raw power and futuristic design.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1
Best 2-in-1 Laptop
Dell's XPS laptops have long been some of the best ultraportables you can buy, and the refreshed XPS 13 2-in-1 appears to be no exception. Already an excellent design, Dell improved it even more by returning the webcam to its more natural place above the screen, which itself is a 16:10 display available in either 1080p or 4K versions. Inside, the XPS 13 2-in-1 will sport 10th Generation "Ice Lake" Intel Core processors. That makes it one of the first laptops to offer the long-awaited Ice Lake chips, which are based on a 10nm process technology and include improved graphics processing.
MSI Prestige P100
This year has seen a resurgence of stylish but immensely powerful desktop PCs, with manufacturers jockeying for attention in the lead-up to Apple’s gotta-be imminent refresh of the Mac Pro. At Computex, it was MSI’s turn to release one, the Prestige P100. Unlike recent new models from Asus and Corsair that mostly follow in the Mac Pro’s compact, cylindrical mold, the Prestige P100 is refreshingly original. It’s thin and white, with a unique triangle geometry on the sides that is intended to evoke “galactic nebula,” according to MSI. Inside the top-end config, there’s an Intel Core i9-9900K processor, 64GB of DDR4 memory, and a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU. What’s not to like?
Synology DVA3219 NAS
Asus ZenScreen Touch
Elgato Stream Deck XL
Best PC Peripheral
AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
Best PC Component
Zotac GeForce GTX 1650 Low Profile
Best Graphics Card
We haven't seen much action in the space for low-profile video cards in recent years, and given that the best of the current lot had been based on the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, it's about time for a new option. Zotac checks the right boxes—no power connector needed, both short and regular I/O brackets included—with this low-profile offering and, in the process, breathes some life into the lackluster GeForce GTX 1650 and the world of very short video cards for extreme chassis. It will never be a mainstream buy, but for those who need it, it is the new "best there is."
