    Default Most Popular Notebooks of May

    May has passed and with it a shakeup in our top 10 notebooks. The Lenovo T60 and Sony Vaio SZ retain control of the top two spots but after that we have four new entrants and Apple even owns two spots with their MacBook and MacBook Pro. Dell lost two units, but added two new ones to keep their manufacturer lead of 4 notebooks in the top 10.

    1. Lenovo ThinkPad T60 (Previously #1) - The ThinkPad T60 is a Core Duo machine that comes with either a 14" or 15" standard aspect ratio display. This thin and light is all about business, featuring one of the best keyboards in the industry, dual pointing devices and optional integrated WAN.

    2. Sony VAIO SZ (Previously #2) - Performance in a small package, that sums up the Sony VAIO SZ. The bright glossy 13.3" display is powered by dedicated graphics and a Core Duo processor. Sony VAIO SZ Reviews | Sony VAIO SZ User Opinions

     

    3. Apple MacBook (New) - Take the power of the Intel Core Duo processor to go, starting at just $1099. Choose MacBook in black or white, both with a brilliant, 13.3-inch glossy widescreen display. Nearly one inch thin, 5.2 pounds, 100% perfect for anyone who wants power in an affordable package.

    Asus seems overpriced for what you get and some of their models only have 1 dimm slot which is downright silly. What makes Asus so good again?? I've seen quite a few people mention their products. I need a $1200 with core duo 1.8, 1gb, 80gb, dedicated graphics, and dvdrw. I looked at the z62f i believe and couldnt get it configured the way I want for the right price. If you guys know a good cheap asus reseller, give me the heads up.

    Perhaps you should post this in the "What Should I Buy?" forum after considering the FAQ.
