Razer's debut desktop PC packs dual Nvidia graphics cards and a plethora of LEDs

Hayden Dingman | Jan. 5, 2016
Razer and Lenovo's partnership is a bit intriguing and a lot expensive.

Lenovo Y27g RE

That makes the Y27g an interesting proposition, though it's not without some drawbacks. It features a less-common VA (vertical alignment) panel, which means your colors won't compete with a quality IPS display, and the 1920x1080 resolution is underwhelming for 27 inches diagonal. But more worrisome is the Y27g's lackadaisical 8 millisecond response time—abnormally high for a gaming monitor, and potentially a harbinger of image ghosting on the display. Impossible to tell without the monitor in front of me.

Aside from the display itself, Lenovo's thrown in a few luxury features—four USB 3.0 ports, a headphone hook, and Razer's Chroma (RGB) lighting on the rear of the monitor if you want to brighten up your wall.

Yes, a headphone hook.

It's an interesting start to what Lenovo termed an "open-ended" partnership—nothing truly shocking, no Project Christine-level surprise, but a solid line-up upon which Razer can hang its neon-green hat. Look for both the IdeaCentre Y900 RE ($2,300+) and the Y27g RE ($600) in June of 2016, and stay tuned all week for more news from CES.
