Square Trade Study show Apple laptops more reliable than major maufacturers


3 year laptop malfunction rates by manufacturer
The Square Trade study showed Apple‘s laptops to be more reliable than those from Dell, Lenovo, Acer and HP. It also shows that they were only marginally behind the most reliable brands, namely Asus, Toshiba and Sony (see chart above).

Based on over 30,000 new laptops and netbooks the study shows that on average (over the whole market) 1 in 3 laptops fail within 3 years. Netbooks are also 20% more unreliable than other laptops. All in all, a pretty poor showing for the industry. You can download the study as a pdf from http://www.squaretrade.com/htm/pdf/SquareTrade_laptop_reliability_1109.pdf
