Most Popular Laptops for November 2008

Most Popular Laptops for November 2008

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 on this site are interested in learning about. Keep in mind that clicks directly on the Most Popular 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.

This month’s list comes a few days later than usual since we had to recover from Black and Cyber but most of the laptops on the list have previously landed on the Top 10 list. The big news is that the Acer Aspire One budget netbook is actually more popular among our visitors than many full-featured notebooks like the Dell Inspiron 1525, or Lenovo ThinkPad T400. Apple’s recent update of the MacBook held onto the number 5 spot on the list for the second month in a row, and the original ASUS Eee PC finally dropped off the top 10 list … a sign that newer netbooks, such as the HP Mini 1000, are generating more interest among consumers.
