Most Popular Laptops for November 2009

Most Popular Laptops for November 2009

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.

This month we finally saw the Acer Aspire One lose its #1 spot being replaced by the ASUS G51. The Lenovo ThinkPad T400 took a pretty big hit as it dropped from #3 to #9, but not as big as the Apple MacBook Pro which went from #10 to #29. Two new notebooks worked their way up into our list. They include the Sony VAIO Z and the Dell Vostro 1520 taking the #5 and #6 spots respectively.
