Most Popular Laptops for March 2009

by Reads (27,122)

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 March features many of the same notebooks and netbooks that were popular last month. In fact, the only notebook that’s new to the list this month is the return of the Dell Studio 15 to the Top 10. Still, this month’s list suggests that consumers are still looking for the right combination of features and value. In some cases the perfect fit is a $300 netbook, and in other cases it might be a $1,500 multimedia notebook.
