Top 20 Best Selling Laptop / Notebook Computers - February 2016

Updated: 8 February, 2016 seen 640

Feel it is time to upgrade your laptop? Have you experienced any OS related problems lately? Out of hard disk drive? Those are just a few symptoms indicating it is time to move on.

Recently I enabled secure HTTPS pages for my website (www.reinisfischer.com) and decided to take a look how well my site renders on older machine (HP laptop back from 2006) with Windows XP operating system - I wasn't able to connect to my blog. The reason? Windows XP doesn't support modern TLS chipper suites. At first I panicked, but latter investigating more - I realized - Microsoft have stopped support for Windows XP, back in 2014. The next move was to look is there an option to upgrade OS for my old pal,unfortunately with built in RAM of 256MB I have no chances to upgrade OS at all, so the only option I'm left - is to upgrade laptop. Luckily, laptop prices in 2016 are dropped a lot if compared to 2006.

You can get some really powerful laptop models under $500 right now. In this article I have listed the top 20 best selling laptops on Amazon of February 2016
