It's the final Week in Review of 2008, and unsurprisingly it's been a relatively quiet week what with the holiday festivities taking priority. Hopefully you've not spent your entire shopping budget on gifts, however, as there are still quite a few interesting gadgets on the horizon. Notebooks small and large again seized the headlines, with various Sony websites dripping out news regarding the company's upcoming VAIO netbook. First a January 9th announcement was promised, then the netbook form-factor confirmed, and finally we've got spec details. At the other end of the scale, more details of Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds appeared, while the mobile workstation itself showed up in photos and on video.
