Samsung Series 9

If you're looking for a beautifully built, extremely thin, light, and portable ultrabook, the Samsung Series 9 rises above the competition. It may lack a few top-end features, but it's a perfect ultraportable for those who can afford it. Read the review.

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy. Read the review.

The 2013 Scion FR-S is a fun sports car, excellent in the turns but lacking big thrust, while the cabin tech upgrade looks intriguing for iPhone users. Read the review.

Sony Vaio E

With only a handful of 11-inch laptops still available, serious travelers are flocking to ultrathin 13-inch models instead. But the low price and good battery life of the Sony Vaio E keep it from being counted out. Read the review.

The Creative WP-450 headphones are good Bluetooth wireless headphones, but the step-down WP-350 model is a better deal. Read the review.
