We've added a new laptop category to PCPartPicker.
The initial seeding of the category is somewhat limited - a few hundred of the most recent models. We'll keep adding more throughout the holidays and then will aim to backfill older models later.
Some of you probably remember our initial attempt at this when we launched PortablePicker. We learned some important lessons from that attempt and tried to incorporate that here. We kept the modeling and specs a bit simpler to allow us to enter laptops faster. But we made sure that the category filtering hit the most important attributes. There's minimal compatibility checking right now, which we may expand on later depending on need.
There are more than a few hundred laptops on the market right now. What you see is our first initial pass. We're adding more daily, but if you don't see a model or series you want let us know and we'll prioritize getting it in.
Hope you like it. Let us know what you think!
