Most Popular Laptops for January 2010

by Reads (50,578)

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.

In the month of January we saw a ton of new notebooks enter our Top 10 list, including the Lenovo ThinkPad T400, Lenovo ThinkPad X200, Dell Studio 17, HP ProBook 4510s, and the 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro. The biggest change this month is the Lenovo G550 which took the lead spot, bumping the Acer Aspire One to #2.
