What we have is a $250 GTX 1060 facing off against a $240 RX 480 8GB and this fight over the mid-range market should be great news for consumers.

The HP Spectre is a thing of beauty. At 10.4mm, it's the world's thinnest laptop.

For the uninitiated, here's a little bit of context: Unreal Tournament drew first blood on the PC in 1999, with a fanciful, science fiction tone and particularly gory splatters. The game focused its efforts on online multiplayer. Never before, nor since, has Capture the Flag been so much fun.
The Asrock DeskMini 110 mini-STX form factor PC certainly has an industrial look about it, and it looks a bit drab sitting next to the Cubi 2 Plus from MSI.

You're inside of one.
