Most Popular Laptops for April 2009

by Reads (24,261)

Each month we compile data for the number of times a particular notebook is viewed on this site’s product pages to get an idea for what mainstream consumers are looking at and thinking about buying. While these laptops aren’t necessarily the most popular in terms of sales, they are the most popular based on the number of times our visitors clicked on them.

In that sense, think of this list as the “most clickable laptops of the month” … the notebooks that most of the people visiting this site are interested in learning about. Keep in mind that clicks directly on the “Most Viewed Laptops” list do not count toward the total in order to keep the list as fair as possible each month. The only clicks that count toward the monthly totals come from web searches like Google or from visitors who have clicked on a laptop after visiting our “Notebook Database” or inside our forums.

The month of April has a few new additions to the Top 10 list. The 12-inch HP Pavilion dv2 and the 13-inch Dell Studio XPS 13 saw a substantial increase in consumer interest thanks in part to our recent reviews. Likewise, the Lenovo T400 jumped back to the number one spot on the list. Still, many of the same notebooks and netbooks that were popular last month are back again.
