Welcome to the monthly listing of the "Top 10 Tablet PCs". This report is compiled based on the number of views each product page receives, so every time someone clicks on a product they’re giving it a vote in that months rankings.

These rankings don’t necessarily indicate which models are the best selling, just which ones TabletPCReview readers are most interested in learning about.

The HP tx1000 and Lenovo X61 are still holding strong at the number one and two spots. While, the not even released, Dell Latitude XT still holds on to third. There were no new contenders this month, just a little shuffling of places. Since the back to school season brought out a new line-up of tablets, we will have to wait and see what the Holidays bring. Maybe some of the new updated tablets will make their way onto the list. Some of our user favorites still remain on the list including the Asus R1, Sony Vaio UX and Toshiba M400. As I mentioned before they don’t seem to be going anywhere, but coming in at number 11 was the Asus R2H and number 12 was the Fujitsu T2010, so maybe they will be able to shake things up next month.
