hows about a decent gaming laptop, like a malibal nine series (obviously top spec) to highlight how pants the gaming laptops we have available in the UK really are compared to USA.

Apple TV.

More on setting a Media Server up - hardware, software, energy efficiency, etc. I've just read through the 'replacing WHS with Linux equivalent' guide and found it very interesting. The forum comments have piqued my interest further so it'd be great to follow up on the article/guide with more tests, how-to's.

I'd love a group review or testing done on PC speakers (2.0 or 2.1) being used on a TV to see if any of them are able to replace the somewhat crappy speakers on some flatscreens these days. For example, would a pair of Creative T40-II's plugged into the RCA out on a Samsung LCD32B350 work well? Any pitfalls, i.e. controlling volume, lead length? If a fairly cheap setup is able to blow away TV speakers, I'm all for knowing about it!

Multi Monitor setups, Which displays are better to use in dual/tri screen setups (If any) And if possible, reviews on different multi monitor brackets like the cheaper ones on offer from Novatech/Scan and what benefits of SLI and Crossfire brings.

Although i do appreciate it could be a little long winded.
Cheers though.

Can you do a review of the best watercooling cases?

Really looking for a good watercooling friendly case, but can you choose ones from other retailers than just the main suppliers like Scan and Yo-Yo Tech.

What good water cooling cases are available that are not available from Scan and Yoyotech?

Not sure really that's why I asked, incase the reviewers know of any from smaller not well known companies.

There is the one I have asked in the Hardware thread about which is the XSPC H2 Tower, but then there is also the Caselabs cases etc.

Well considering what my 3920XM can achieve, it is in fact faster than a desktop i7 2600K clock for clock. Would love to see a comparison of the desktop i7 3770K at the same clock.

I would like to see a review of different radiators sizes, cooling an extreem and normal setup.
Normal system: watercooled gpu + cpu
Extreme: watercooled tri gpu + cpu
Radiators: 120, 240, 360, 480, 1080. (very intrested in the 1080)

I'd like to see the HD5870 added for comparison when you're testing a GPU. It's 3 years old but it's still a powerfull card that many of us are still using.

Another good thing would be low power rig. It's always about high / mid end setup, but I can't find review of, for example, the T series core cpus (i3-3220T, i5-3570T, i7-3770T). This could make a nice devel / home computer but nobody seems to feel like reviewing them. Be the first pweez

Any chance of reviewing 3d party GPU coolers again, been a while since your last, and it be nice to see the newer water cooling units for graphic cards vs air cooling.
