Lenovo and Apple Most Reliable Laptops, Report Says

Apple and Lenovo Laptop users are smug lots. And, according to a recent PC Pro poll, they deserve to be.

After surveying 20,000 tech support calls randomly, it turns out Lenovo, followed by Apple, are the most reliable laptops one can buy in the US with HP, Dell and finally Gateway rounding out the list.

Even more telling is that off-brand laptops scored at the very bottom of the heap, something new to the PC world, as “local vendors” generally have a reputation for reliability and excellent support.

Now you know what to look for in a laptop if trouble-free computing is your hot-button. Or, if like our editor Blake, the only human contact you ever get is with tech support, we’d like to recommend a Dell.
