We cover a bunch of products in our unboxing section and on Unboxing Live, and we've gotta say that we're intrigued by how frustratingly bad the experience seems to be when trying to open up your new Google Nexus 7 tablet, made by Asus. Our unit got delayed and won't be in the office until next week, but in the meantime, check out the hard times that others have had trying to get the Nexus 7 tablet out of the box in the video compilation after the break. Oh, and don't forget--we're giving away a Nexus 7 this week!
Last week Apple revealed it's next-generation MacBook Pro with Retina display during the WWDC 2012 keynote.

Join us as we answer these questions, and more, in our MacBook Pro with Retina display review.

The new iPad (or iPad 3, as some call it) from Apple features an amazing Retina display, A5X processor with quad-core graphics, and optional 4G LTE from Verizon or AT&T.
