Most Popular Laptops for April 2010

Most Popular Laptops for April 2010

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 notcount 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 most popular spot this month as one of our preferred value notebooks by a wide margin. The Dell Studio XPs 16 moved up to #2 and the ASUS G73JH gaming notebook moving up to #4. Two newcomers this month are the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 14 and Lenovo ThinkPad X100e taking the #9 and #10 spots respectively.
