Most Popular Laptops for July 2009

by Reads (30,525)

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.

After countless months the Lenovo ThinkPad T400 was finally bumped out of the #1 position by the Acer Aspire One. The Dell Mini 9 netbook also made its way up the list, getting a bump from #7 to #6. New to the Top 10 are the Dell Inspiron 15 and Lenovo G530, filling the #9 and #10 spots. The only notebooks which stayed in their respective positions were the Dell Studio XPS 16 holding #5 and the HP Pavilion dv2z holding #8.
