Yeah, that was this week at CNET Laptop HQ. So this digest will be in the form of a list, with witty commentary to return in seven days.

In CNET Reviews this week:

  • the HP Pavilion HDX18, an "impressive semiportable home theater";
  • Lenovo's entry into the Netbook space, the IdeaPad S10;

  • the business-oriented, 13-inch Toshiba Satellite U400-S1001X;

    Tech expert Michelle Thatcher grew up surrounded by gadgets and sustained by Tex-Mex cuisine. Life in two major cities--first Chicago, then San Francisco--broadened her culinary horizons beyond meat and cheese, and she's since enjoyed nearly a decade of wining, dining, and cooking up and down the California coast. Though her gadget lust remains, the practicalities of her small kitchen dictate that single-function geegaws never stay around for long.
