We get started this week just in time to follow Intel's major Sandy Bridge chipset crisis. How will this affect review systems we're testing in the Lab? Tune in to find out. Then we answer some popular reader questions about when to buy a laptop and when to wait, especially with rumors of a MacBook refresh in the air.

Finally, it's time to clean out the old game closet, and we try a new chat room contest, rewarding correct tech trivia answers with games.
