Apple lands top honors

Apple received the in both the desktop and notebook categories in PC Magazine's 17th Annual Reader Satisfaction Survey: Apple scored an "8.8 in desktops, significantly better than the industry average of 7.8, and 9.0 for notebooks, also significantly better than the 8.0 average. These scores qualify as excellent on our 1-to-10 scale, earning the company Readers' Choice awards for both categories. At 9.0 for desktops and 9.2 for notebooks, Apple's impressive reliability scores are at least a point higher than the industry averages. Nearly all respondents to our survey who supplied quotes about their Apple desktops found them extremely reliable. Compared with other brands, a much lower percentage of Apple desktop systems needed repairs over the last year."

    Probably because...

    We'd never say anything about Apple. I support a bunch of macs, and sure there are problems, but none *worth* reporting.

    I am surprised

    ...by the lack of biased journalists post.

    Not saying that there are biased people out there but those "not favorable Apple news = biased journalists" comments is just trite.

    well, yeah.

    This article even shows, yes, we have problems. On a whole, though, I have fewer problems with my Apples.

    Consumer Reports

    Apple was also top-rated for reliability and support (by a wide margin) in the latest Consumer Reports.
