With the holiday season upon us, many laptop shoppers are looking for a new system as a gift for either a lucky recipient or themselves. To assist you in this noble endeavor, we've been tracking the most promising laptops from the second half of 2010, from entry-level systems starting at well under $500 to $1,000-plus high-end multimedia and gaming rigs.
Unlike our previous review roundups, our net is cast a bit wider this time around, and includes both retail-specific systems as well as laptops you can order directly from the manufacturer. Additionally, we've decided to focus on laptops and Netbooks that we actually consider worth buying--no dogs here. If a laptop isn't at least a decent deal for the money, you won't find it on this page.
Note that this roundup is more of a broad look at what's available for laptop shoppers. You can find our actual 2010 Holiday Gift Guide laptop picks here, with laptops and other tech gifts broken down into a variety of handy categories.
Below you'll find a list of the systems in our Holiday 2010 laptop review roundup, divided by price range and with links to the full reviews. Check back regularly, as we'll be updating this page with new systems as we review them.
Budget $599 and under
High-end $900 and up
