    Did you watch Top Gear slay the City Rover? If they can do that, then why not?

    I like the idea; it'd have to be fairly extensive, though, to cover multiple platforms. The "This sucks more than a Dyson" list'd also be fairly useful.

    Excellent idea!

    It will be more accurate then PC Pro's Alist because hexus reviews are far quicker off the mark and the alist can be updated immediatly. Whereas PC pro's is only updated once per month.

    We will have to call it something other then the A list though.... any ideas peeps?

    Sounds like a nice idea .

    Regarding the PC Pro Alist it would benifit from a few more price ranges. Ie not just showing what is the best of the best but also the best of the mid range and best of the budget etc.

    That is something you could bear in mind.

    How about calling it Hot Hardware?

    Or Hexus Hotpicks?

    OK I'll shut up already.

    It would be pretty good to have, much easier to work what to spend money on next! Like others have already said, a short summary would be handy so that you can see what its pros and cons are quickly.

    I would also say that it needs to have several different price ranges from the very high to budget.
