Any good reason why this Acer hasn't been reviewed on Cnet?

Acer Aspire AS5672WLMi

This laptop goes for 1089.00 on new egg.
Its 15.4", Core Duo (1.66), 1gig of ram, 128 mb of ram for its built in Ati x1400 card, 100gig harddrive, and a DvD burner.

Then again, I haven't seen many Acers reviewed on this site. With how good Cnet normally posts scores for Dell, I'm beginning to wonder if they are just business partners. There isn't a single laptop maker that can come close to this pricepoint with these specs. I have done a little bit of research on the company and overall people seem very satisfied with their products.

What gives? Or is the product just too new to recieve a review?

If CNet is like PCWorld...

...I used to have a buddy who worked there...then they review what they get from the OEMs, if it fits into their editorial calendar. At PCWorld, when you got a product reviewed, and it made the top 10, it stayed on it until it got knocked off. Not sure if it still works that way.
