Most of the laptop reviews I read could almost have been written by my 87 year old mother. The last one I read didn't even mention the chipset used on the motherboard!
I'd really like to see more thorough reporting and more objective testing and fewer subjective-only opinions.
Asus make a line of barebones laptops. It would be nice to know if their bios have any more options, memory settings for example, than the typical laptop bios. Reviews seen so far seem barely able to recognise that the machine even has a bios.
Compared to the motherboard testing done by the likes of Anandtech, the business of laptop reviews has a long way to go. With laptops taking an increasing share of the market, it's time for some of the hardware sites to step up to the plate.
