Most Popular Laptops for March 2010

by Reads (36,702)

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 Lenovo G550 still holds the #1 spot this month with the Acer Aspire One and Lenovo ThinkPad T400 finally dropping off the Top 10. We saw many new faces this month with the Alienware m11x joining the ranks at #3, the Lenovo ThinkPad W510 at #5, the ASUS G73JH at #6, and the Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro returning at #7.
