New in our buyer's guide: The iPhone 6s, Surface Book and much more

It may be time for an upgrade... or two.

    Sorry we haven't updated the buyers's guide in a couple months -- we've been too busy pumping out reviews of all the new devices. Now that things have finally started to slow down (fingers crossed), let's take a step back and look at all the awesome stuff we've had a chance to test this fall. For starters, there's a bunch of excellent smartphones that we absolutely need to add to our guide. Namely: the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the Nexus 6P and 5X, and the Moto X Pure. On the tablet side, we're inducting both the iPad mini 4 and the Surface Pro 4. Microsoft makes another appearance in the laptop section, where we've added the Surface Book, along with Dell's Chromebook 13. Rounding out the list, we threw in a few miscellaneous items, including the new Xbox One Elite Wireless controller, the redesigned Sonos Play:5 wireless speaker and Google's $35 Chromecast Audio.

    In exchange for this new gear, of course, we've also taken lots of aging items out of the guide. We don't think you'll miss 'em. Check out the full list here, and stay tuned to see what we add next month. As you read this, we are testing the Lenovo Yoga 900, HP Spectre X2 and the Lumia 950, among others. Only time (and a lot of testing) will tell which makes the cut.
