Macbook Pro 13.3" tops Amazon bestsellers list, Chromebook comes third
Ultraportables seem to be the flavor of the season, as all of the top three laptops on Amazon’s current bestsellers list sport screen sizes between 11.6” and 14.4” – excluding them.
The first ultraportable is the Apple Macbook Pro MC700LL/A 13.3-Inch carrying a price-tag of $1134. This ultraportable comes with a 13.3” LED-backlit display panel with 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 384MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared, 320 GB Hard Drive, 8x DVD/CD SuperDrive, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, high speed Thunderbolt Port, FaceTime HD Camera and Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard. The product gets a rating of 4.7 out of a total of 5.
The second laptop, the Toshiba Portege R835-P56x, sports a 13.3" diagonal widescreen TruBrite TFT display at 1366 x 768 native resolution (HD) with 16:9 Aspect Ratio and LED Backlit, a 2.3 GHz (2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology) Intel Core i5-2410M Processor, 3MB Cache memory, 4GB DDR3 1333MHz RAM (max 8GB), 640GB (5400 RPM) HDD, Serial ATA hard disk drive with TOSHIBA Hard Drive Impact Sensor (3D sensor), and a 6 cell/48Wh Lithium Ion battery promising up to 8hrs of life. The system comes pre-loaded with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. You shell out $799.99 for it.
The third entry is a breath of fresh air into the already crowded configurations we have in market. The Samsung Series 5 3G Chromebook is the first officially released computer to run Google’s Chrome OS. It has a dual-core Intel processor, the superbright 12.1” screen, up to 8hrs of battery life, and cloud storage. It is a new product in market, and still has a lot of scope for improvement, but it is heartening to see more and more people being ready to try out new concepts. It has a lot to do with Samsung’s brilliant design and Google’s brand name associated with the Chrome OS. In fact the Cromebook was the highest selling product a few days ago – as reported by Liliputing.
