If you already know what kind of laptop you’re looking for, you can skip the first two sections and get straight to the selection part to choose your laptop based on a number of different categories. They are: price ($400 – $2600), screen size (8 – 19″), processor (1 GHz – 3GHz), RAM (1GB – 5GB), storage (50GB – 550GB), and weight (2lbs – 10lbs). You can also select whether or not you need an all around, mobile studio, movies on the go, power gaming, or work from anywhere laptop.
Microsoft claims the selection of laptops comes from a compiled list from Windows experts and the final selection has nothing to do with any sort of paid advertising. Right now, the website contains 46 various laptops, but more are likely to follow in the weeks ahead, especially with the release of Windows 7. The website isn’t too detailed – your average computer user should feel comfortable with it, and the most tech-savvy folks probably won’t see the need for it.
