We like to think we know a thing or two about technology, with expert coverage of the latest CPUs, GPUs, SSDs, Laptops, Smartphones, and other items, so we usually try to put together some recommendations for the technophiles out there (or their significant others)."</em></p><p><span><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1289976958.usr17748.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></span></p><p><span><em>image source:&nbsp;</em></span><em>onlybestlaptops.com</em></p><p>AnandTech's first Holiday Buying Guide for 2010 is here, and specializes in notebooks. Interesting that the authors point out Intel's impending release of their Sandy Bridge architecture, and hint at waiting on new purchases. They've broken down their guide into five sections: netbooks, ultraportables, mainstream, gaming machines, and workstations, and the offerings discussed run the gamut of power and price. Their approach is consumer focused, &nbsp;presenting what they consider to be 'the best for the money you can get.' Worth a read if you're in the market this holiday season.</p>
