Most Popular Laptops for December 2009

by Reads (21,778)

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.

During the last month of 2009 the Acer Aspire One recaptured the #1 spot from the ASUS G51. After countless months on our Top 10 list the Lenovo ThinkPad T400 has dropped off, slipping to #12. The only newcomer to the Top 10 this month is the HP Pavilion dv6t which quietly slipped into the #6 position thanks to holiday shoppers.
