10 Best-Selling Notebooks on Amazon This Holiday Season

The computing world is dominated by HP, Dell, and Lenovo. But if one were to examine the best-selling notebooks on Amazon—one of the world’s biggest online retailers—the list of sales leaders looks strikingly different. Amazon’s current slate of notebook best-sellers is dominated by Acer and Asus, companies that build cheap computers for buyers on a budget. And while Microsoft Windows continues to dominate the computing market, Chromebooks running on Google’s Chrome OS platform are remarkably popular. Of course, customers buy computers from a variety of retailers. But Amazon is a barometer for how budget-conscious online shoppers choose products. The company’s list of best-selling notebook PCs clearly shows that the market is strong for low-cost computers. Here are the top 10 best-selling notebooks on Amazon.
