Laptop reliability survey

The 3-year service history of more than 30,000 laptops has been pored over, analyzed, and reduced to gorgeous comparative charts

In other words, you get what you pay for -- shocking, right?

U can check out where the top 2 manufacturers of the world are placed in terms of reliability.......(HP & Acer)

ASUS and Toshiba share the winners' spoils, while HP languishes in the ignominious last place, with more than a quarter of all laptops expected to suffer a hardware fault of some kind within three years.

Any comments are welcome

Re: Laptop reliability survey

Failure due to specific hardware malfunctions, I can accept.

But accidental damage is not the manufacturer's fault, so the % caused by accidental damage, shouldn't be taken into account in the results of a survey like that emoticon.Idea.title
