From afar, this laptop might be mistaken for a MacBook Air, which tells you a lot about its level of quality. Replete with an all-metal frame, this is probably one of the best-looking laptops for under 500 bucks. There are plenty of ports (old and new), 4GB of RAM and up to 512GB in solid-state storage. The cheapest models have a respectable Intel Core i3 processor, but you can get the more i5 versions if you need that extra kick. Another dig at Apple? Unlike the Air, this laptop sports a fully HD screen.
This is my method for buying on Amazon (eBay in disguise), eBay, Abes: ask questions before sale about packing, when product will really be sent, do they provide tracking, have they described condition, what is their feedback like (go back and see how many people are dissatisfied each day for a month or so…tedious, but if you have people every day saying you screwed up, something’s wrong), do they respond to emails and do they answer the questions asked?
For comparison’s sake, Amazon Prime Day 2016 had led to a 3x increase in Amazon device sales, including a 2.5x increase in U.S. sales for its Echo speaker. It seems we’re on track to surpass those increases this year.

My number that night was a little under 450,000, which — even as a novice — I had to assume wasn’t quite Fifty Shades of Grey status yet. But presumably the ranking would go up — or down, as the case may be — when the novel actually went on sale. Either way, I did a little research into how the rating system works and learned that very little concrete information is available.
Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.com marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the US marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other North American marketplaces using a unified account.
Another benefit on these top selling lists is that you can identify the top selling brands. This is helpful for SEO research as well as creating pages/posts via auto-blog where you enter keywords into the software/app/plug-in.
“The Anker charger is small and comes with a carrying case. This charger charges my phone quickly, about 2 hours and my phone is fully charged. The only negative with this charger is that it can only charge my phone one time, I really wish I could get two charges out of it.” – Aaron J. Garcia, Amazon reviewer
Looking for a cheaper alternative to the pricey Intel Core i7 processor laptop? Think Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i3. Intel Core i3 processor laptop will be great for simpler tasks like Word processing and internet…
The story is told through the eyes of Offred, one of the unfortunate Handmaids under the new social order. In condensed but eloquent prose, by turns cool-eyed, tender, despairing, passionate, and wry, she reveals to us the dark corners behind the establishment’s calm facade, as certain tendencies now in existence are carried to their logical conclusions.
It’s a little hefty at just over five pounds and the battery isn’t user-replaceable, but that is a murderer’s row of specifications that contends with far more expensive laptops, like Dell’s Inspiron 15 Gaming Series that we just reviewed. It’s not a 2-in-1 and it doesn’t have a touchscreen, but if you just need a good old fashioned laptop with killer hardware, this is—without question—the best deal around. Don’t hesitate.

You’ll see what’s currently getting the most sales in the main categories of Amazon, but since your niche site probably isn’t as broad as “Toys and Games” or “Electronics,” you’ll need to dig a little deeper.
We think the two sources together provide good coverage but it’s not going to be 100%. A seller that’s missing from the seller directories (or who only sells in categories without a directory) and does not have an offer for any of the top 100 best sellers won’t be on the list. A summary of the methodology is in the “About the Data” section at the end of the article, but in less detail because it gets pretty complex.

Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) is an e-commerce powerhouse that has continually expanded its footprint from its early days of selling books online to now selling nearly everything from beauty products to car parts. Last year alone, Amazon brought in an eye-popping $136 billion in revenue, and 43% of all e-commerce sales in the U.S. were completed through Amazon’s website, according to Slice Intelligence.
Henry Holt and Co., the publisher, ramped up its rollout in the wake of the Guardian leak, at which point details of the book continued to surface online. It was reported later on Wednesday that Fire and Fury also included claims that Trump was “befuddled” by his election victory in November 2016, that political ally Rupert Murdoch once called Trump a “f—ing idiot,” and that Melania Trump cried when her husband was elected president. (The First Lady and the White House both denied the latter allegation, which was first revealed in an excerpt printed by New York Magazine.)
(NOTE – While lowering the price is certainly a good strategy to rank higher, it is not always a good long-term business strategy. You do NOT want to compete on price alone, as this will only start a price war/race to the bottom)
The specs seem to line up quite well with other laptops in its price range, and it’s selling like gang-busters. That’s a pretty good indication that it’s a good laptop for the money given the high marks it has received in the user reviews.
Famed journalist Carl Bernstein, who called Trump a neo-fascist last March, said on CNN that “fascism is about a maximum leader, who is contemptuous of real democracy, of real Democratic institutions, contemptuous of the press and a free press, who extols torture and violence, who incites hatred. And there’s a great book, Sinclair Lewis’ ‘It Can’t Happen Here,’ published in the ’30s, and we’ve never quite had a presidential candidate reach this level of prominence who embodies kind of what Sinclair Lewis was talking about in that book.”
