In a recent poll, over 75% of people surveyed would rather go to the dentist than pick out a laptop computer. Just kidding. That's not really a true statistic but it feels like it is. I'm a self-confessed computer geek and even I don't like to shop for computers. All this talk about RAM and hard drives and megahertz makes my head really hurt. I'd much rather have a list of what everyone else is buying and pick from those. So that's what I've done here - I sleuthed around and got my hands on the top five best-selling laptops to make it super-easy to click and buy.
