MacBooks Are More Durable Than Their Rivals - Survey
Latest survey conducted by Consumer Reports among 58,000 laptop owners who purchased their machines between 2010 and 2015 has revealed that Apple laptops are the most reliable devices on the market. Moreover, MacBooks are less likely to require repairs in the course of 3 to 5 years if to compare with rivals from other vendors. Both Air and Pro MacBook lineups turned out to be extremely reliable and durable.
As noted by researchers, the failure rate of the MacBook Air is 7% and the same figure for the MacBook Pro is 9%. Most rivals have a failure rate of over 10%, with Lenovo Y series laptops showing the worst result of 23%.
At the top of the list for Windows product lines are: Gateway’s NV (13 percent) and LT (14 percent); the Samsung ATIV Book (14 percent); Lenovo ThinkPads (15 percent); and the Dell XPS line (15 percent).
Looks like the price of Apple’s MacBooks is indeed quite reasonable and those who decide to spend more on a laptop at the time of purchase are not likely to pay for its repair in future.
