Top-rated reviews of the week (pictures)

It may not have been the most product-laden week, but CNET editors still reviewed a few Windows 8 systems -- an inexpensive touch-screen laptop, a business laptop, and an all-in-one desktop -- as well as a pair of snazzy sweat-resistant earphones, the nimble 2013 Cadillac ATS, and Temple Run 2.

Temple Run 2

Temple Run 2

If you like the original Temple Run or enjoy running games, Temple Run 2 is an excellent sequel with tons of new content, beautiful graphics, and more heart-pounding escape game action. Read the review.

Monster iSport Intensity

Monster iSport Intensity

While in sound quality the Monster iSport Intensity earphones are a step down from the noise-isolating Immersion models, they offer good sound and a comfortable, secure fit with an open design that will appeal to folks who don't like having eartips jammed into their ears. Read the review.

Vine for iOS

Vine for iOS

There are certainly other apps in the App Store that let you take short video loops, and even offer a similar layout, but Vine for iOS keeps the controls extremely easy and painless, making it a great way to capture short scenes. Read the review.

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m

HP EliteBook Folio 9470m

The HP EliteBook Folio 9470m does a serviceable job of being a good thin, all-around Windows 8 business laptop, but it doesn't rise above the crowd, and it doesn't take any chances. Read the review.

2013 Cadillac ATS

2013 Cadillac ATS

The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a fun, nimble little luxury car that offers an easy all-around driving experience, and while its cabin electronics features are solid, the touch-screen performance proves frustrating. Read the review.
