Most Popular Laptops for August 2011

by Reads (24,734)

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. Take a closer look at the notebooks that our visitors wanted to see the most during the month of August.

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 Dell Inspiron 15R bears an Intel second-generation processor and powerful graphics, and it’s the leader of this list for the third month in a row. The Dell XPS 15 is in the #2 position for the second consecutive month. The 14.5-inch HP Envy 14 multimedia notebook is in the number three position.
