Top-rated reviews of the week (pictures)

This week, CNET editors said goodbye to May and said hello to such technological wonders as the mellifluously named Garmin Nuvi 3597LMTHD, which tells you where to go (in a good way); a nifty laptop-tablet hybrid; a number of excellent updates to handy iOS and Android apps; and one of the best multiple-bay NAS servers we've seen so far.
