Laptops Added to PCPartPicker

philip

Nov. 22, 2019

Today we're pleased to announce that PCPartPicker is now listing traditional and 2-in-1 Laptops.

You can now easily search for the best laptops by screen size, refresh rate, CPU, RAM, storage, and more. You can mark your favorites, watch price histories, and set price alerts.

We've bootstrapped the new product category with a few hundred recent laptops. We'll continue to add in additional models into our database through the holidays and the following months. In the meantime, if there is a particular model or series you'd like us to add in, let us know in the part addition requests forum.
