    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.

    Though not listed, I'd might as well mention the W3j and A8jm from ASUS, which were finally released last month :p

    The Macbook Pro moved up from #7 to #5.

    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.
