You have to love Top 10s! From David Letterman dropping 10 morsels a night, to the 10 best restaurants in rural Arkansas, there's always something to pique your interest.
The following list will not disappoint. Here's the top 10 laptops for bloggers (in no particular order).
HP Mini 1000 Series
Accessibility and price make the HP Mini 1000 Series a serious competitor for a blogger's business. With a starting price of $349 and the ability to customize, this lightweight, ultraportable HP laptop offers comfort and mobility, even in those tight, blogging spaces -- when a session of people watching has cued your train of thought.
ASUS Eee PC 701
A question has been posed about the ASUS Eee PC 701: Is it a blogger's dream? Well, it depends entirely on the blogger.
If rapid accessibility (seriously, a 15 second start up time) and Internet access are two things you need, then by all means, this is a blogger's dream. However, if you're looking for some serious storage, there's only 16GB available in the ASUS Eee. Ultimately, the 7-inch display is really geared toward one purpose.
Toshiba Satellite A300-ST4505
If you're a blogger who uses your computer for more than writing, the Toshiba Satellite series offers versatility, user-friendly features and a price tag that won't bust the budget. When it comes to mobility, the 6-cell Li-Ion battery will allow for extended sessions of writing, browsing and brainstorming. The 15.4-inch TruBrite display offers vibrant visuals, perfect for media applications.
Dell Inspiron Mini
For surfing the web, blogging and keeping the budget in tact, the Dell Inspiron Mini (9-inch and 12-inch), range from $399 to $599. It's lightweight and compact size -- the perfect traveling companion. With Windows XP and 512MB of RAM, it is capable of moderate multi-tasking.
Acer Aspire One 8.9-inch Mini Laptop
The Acer Aspire One 8.9-inch mini laptop is another great option for bloggers who are always on the move. Many who have purchased this model specifically for blogging and mobility have fallen in love with the user-friendly Linux operating system.
HP Pavilion dv4z series
A mid-size, portable laptop, the HP Pavilion dv4z series is perfect for the blogger who needs reference to media, as well as storage space and multi-tasking capabilities. With prices beginning at $549.99, the 14.1-inch Pavilion is a great deal for bloggers.
How could this list possibly neglect Steve Jobs? After all, the new MacBooks are by far the most eco-friendly and efficient laptops on the market. The marriage of Apple and Intel has provided a machine that runs as smooth as silk and can handle an impressive workload. If unafraid to leave Windows behind, a MacBook would be an excellent blogging investment.
Alienware Area-51 m15x
For the gamer in you, how about a moderately priced machine that is fast, reliable and capable? The 15.4-inch notebook will allow for multiple uses, presents the best graphics in a computer of this size and looks really, really cool.
Fujitsu LifeBook U810 Mini-Notebook
For a little pizzazz in the world of mini laptops, the Fujitsu offers an incredibly versatile, ultraportable notebook that boasts Windows Vista Home-Premium Edition, a 5.6-inch display, 1GB of RAM, a 40GB hard drive and weighs an impressive 1.56 lbs. When looking for the ultimate in portability and performance, few laptops compare to the LifeBook U810.
Lenovo ThinkPad SL300 13.3-inch Widescreen
A little more space and whole lot of computing power and storage for the blogger. The Lenovo is the workhorse of computing. Though the aesthetics are nothing spectacular, bloggers can trust in the performance, reliability, durability and mobility of this model, starting at under $700.
