I can believe that apple computers are more reliable hardware-wise, but I would be more interested in software-problem related statistics, but I'm having trouble imagining a study that can gauge that. Number of support calls to apple vs microsoft per licensed user? We hear plenty of grudges about windows software but that could also be due to the larger windows userbase on the one hand and the prouder Mac userbase on the other hand less likely to report problems.
I thought the sad Mac and the bomb screen were pretty darn hilarious too...
They already have, problems people in a sample group have with software releated problems in the first 6 months and then year are the ones consumer reports also does. This is more of a software thing so of course Apple tops the list with Samsung and ASUS taking up next places generally.
Apple used to have a OVERWHELMINGLY majority on the calls and issues done but it has gone down a bit in recent year(not years lol) as they are getting massive influxes of people using their products now. They are still in the top last I checked though.
Report problems? Most Mac users are consumers or professionals...THEY MAKE IT KNOWN haha. And often times they have worser questions than others. People like me that get both PC's Mac's are not as much as you may think...most seperate into one group..and if you know much about computers, most seperate into the PC Enthusiast group.
