The best buy site, pick a model and then google that as well as add the word CNET REVIEW on your search.
Works for me.
By the time "reviews" are published, some products (e.g. @ Best Buy) are no longer available!
After doing some recent online research (esp. CNet), I'd decided on a particular Toshiba Satellite, based on reviews and the most important-for-me specs (-S6980 available only @ Best Buy, citing their particular # "A505-").
Of course, that "model" is sold out, no longer available, no re-order, and BB offers no info on what is replacing that version.
ANY SUGGESTIONS on where to find current reviews of currently-available mid-priced laptops??
