I like Toms, AndTech, notebookreview, and the other established sites. Plus I look at 3 or 4 reviews.

I like Cnet also, but sometimes you can tell the reviewer is biased

I stopped reading Toms Hardware due to their bias. They used to be very pro Intel and for a while they were even running articles that were basically Apple advertisements.

Anandtech is my review site of choice since they are consistently informative and impartial.
