Most Popular Laptops for May 2010

by Reads (26,708)

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 May.

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 won’t give up its hold on the #1 postion by a longshot. The Dell Studio XPS 16, Lenovo ThinkPad X201 and ASUS G73JH are still holding their 2nd, 3rd and 4th spots respectively. New to the list this month are the Dell Inspiron 14 and Inspiron 11z, in spots 5 and 10. In our forums the Alienware M11x is still the most discussed item with 7 threads in the Top 20 most discussed threads list.
