E Fun, a maker of budget tablets, has announced its first two laptops at CES this week, scheduled for release later this year.

The manufacturer targets its devices at users who are in search of a more modestly priced computer. The first laptop is the 11.6” convertible Nextbook with a 1,366x768p IPS touch screen. It comes with 64GB worth of storage and microSD card expansion, USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, and a microHDMI port. It has a 360-degree convertible hinge so it can also be used as a tablet. It’s priced at $270.

Second is the 14” Nextbook laptop, priced at $200, which is a pretty basic laptop for everyday needs. It has a 1,366x768p screen and 32GB of storage, again with microSD card expansion, along with Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, microHDMI port, USB 2.0, and USB 3.0 port.

Both laptops are powered by a quad-core Intel AtomTM x5-Z8300 processor with 2GB system memory and run Windows 10. They are expected to be released in the second quarter of this year.

“Building off the success of our Nextbook tablet and detachable lines, we are thrilled to enter the consumer laptop category in 2016,” said Jason Liszewski, managing director and VP of sales of E Fun. “This introduction is the next step for E Fun to continue bringing innovative new products to market at a price point that resonates with consumers.”

“E Fun’s new Windows 10 Nextbook devices are further proof that you can do great things on any budget,” said Jordan Chrysafidis, vice president of US OEM at Microsoft. “These value-priced devices are great for education or entertainment, and with Windows 10 features, customers can have fun and get more done.”

E Fun had previously stuck with tablets, and had recently launched a line of Android tablets for Verizon and a 2-in-1 Nextbook tablet with Intel’s Atom Cherry Trail processors running Windows 10. Again, prices started modestly at around $150.

Asus has launched a slate of new budget gaming laptops at CES 2022. The trio forms part of the company’s TUF laptop lineup, which is focused on the more affordable end of the gaming spectrum.

They include the TUF Gaming F15 and F17, the TUF Gaming A15 and A17, and the TUF Dash 15. All come with new features inside and updated designs on the outside, which Asus says makes for a “more refined” look inspired by “mecha anime.” Gaming laptops aren’t exactly known for their subtle designs, and Asus’ fare is no exception, so you might find the refreshed TUF range a welcome break if you’re a little tired of LED-festooned everything.

If you love the design -- and performance -- of Netgear's tried and trusted wing-shaped Nighthawk routers, the latest Nighthawk RAXE300 should catch your eye. The RAXE300 is a Wi-Fi 6E router that was announced ahead of CES this year, and this new, more affordable model joins the much beloved and more premium RAXE500, which is one of our favorite gaming routers on the market today.

Like the premium RAXE500, the RAXE300's adoption of Wi-Fi 6E should lead to better performance with more spectrum, more high bandwidth channels, and less interference with reduced latency, according to Netgear.
