Sony NEX-6, Barnes and Noble Nook HD, BT YouView - reviews roundup - plus read our verdicts on the: Toshiba Satellite L855-148 and Asus K55VD laptops. Our weekly review roundup this week contains the most exciting new kit you can buy, fully-tested in our lab.
If you've been holding off buying a new laptop because of Windows 8 then wait no longer. Read our Toshiba Satellite L855-148 review. This powerful laptop may not have a fancy touchscreen, but everything else is top-notch and it costs just £635 inc VAT.
We've long been fans of Sony's NEX system cameras, but the latest model is the best by far - read our Sony NEX-6 review. It has ironed out the problems with previous NEX cameras, while retaining the compact size and fantastic low-light capabilites. This is the best CSC you can buy.
Barnes and Noble are a big competitor to Amazon in the US and have now released a tablet in the UK, see our Barnes & Noble Nook HD review. It goes head-to-head with the likes of Amazon's Fire HD, but has a superior higher-resolution screen. Though we can't promise the company pays any more UK corporation tax than its competitor.
YouView may have been delayed, but it's here now and it's a brilliant alternative to Sky and Virgin Media. Now BT is rolling out the boxes at incredibly low prices, with extra content too, read our BT YouView review for all the details.
Another great-value Windows 8 laptop, this time from Asus. Read our Asus K55VD review. It's a great laptop for under £450, and its dedicated graphics make it an attractive option for gamers on a budget.
Finally, check out our rundown of all the best new features in Android 4.2. Tablet users in particular should be clamouring for an update from their manufacturers.

The Nook is great! I'm absolutely in LOVE with this thing! It's easy to use so I didn't have to go searching the internet for tutorials. Here's the one I have on Amazon http://bit.ly/UD0qKL. If you're looking to get a tablet I'd recommend the Nook over the other tablets, it really blows them away. :)
