The Xbox One X has unprecedented power for a gaming console, but its $500 price may restrict its appeal to hardcore gamers. On the plus side, it offers more room for 4K or 60 fps gaming than the PS4 Pro and includes a 4K Blu-ray player.

The 43-inch version of Samsung's 4K TV that can disguise itself as an art piece is now available on and from various retailers in the US. It's the latest entry in the Korean conglomerate's The Frame series, following the 55- and 65-inch versions' debut back in June. This one will set you back $1,300 -- definitely not cheap, but relatively more affordable than the biggest variant that will cost you $2,799.

Same for iPads and Macs, while the catch-all division that tracks Watch, AirPods and Apple TV sales took in $3.23 billion last quarter -- 36 percent more than the same period last year.
