macbook pro best selling computer 2010

Amazon has just released their “Best of 2010″ list, and sitting right at the top of their bestselling computer list is the MacBook Pro 13″. Apple’s popular laptop also grabbed the number one spot for the “Most Wished For” computer of the year.

I’m not surprised at all to see the MacBook Pro take this position, I have the 13″ model and it’s a great machine. Earlier in the year I went ahead and upgraded the MacBook Pro to 8GB RAM and I’d love to get an SSD drive after seeing this video of the performance boost. These kind of upgrades squeeze even more performance out of an already stellar laptop.

Anyway, back to the official accolades… if you’re curious, here’s the press release from Amazon:

  1. I love mine, as soon as they announced the new 2.4 GHz model with the “10-hour” battery, I bought one the day they were available.

  2. zac says:

    yeah, i got mine too shortly after it was announced, when I heard about the battery, rightly assuming i would only get 4-5 hours out of it. Which is the case (just wireless surfing, Terminal, itunes)

    Which, is better than my 2009 c2d 13″ mbp- that one gets 2-3 hours.

    I love my 13″ MBP and am proud to have contributed to it being the #1 seller in 2010. I only with I had a SSD in it. ;)
