Most Popular Laptops for March 2011

by Reads (29,535)

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. Take a closer look at the notebooks that our visitors wanted to see the most during the month of March.

 

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.

Even though the Lenovo ThinkPad X220 is new to the Most Popular Laptops List, it rose to the #1 spot this month, pushing the Lenovo ThinkPad X201 down to position #2, which it held since October 2010. The Lenovo ThinkPad T410 occupies the #3 spot; a bump down since last month.
