Best performing Windows PC on the market? Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro, of course

Soluto’s sample for constructing this report included 224,144 crashes and 84,251 blue-screens over a course of 3 months.

“The MacBook Pro is the most expensive PC among the top 3, but if you’re looking for top reliability – the data is clear,” Soluto reports. “MacBook Pro is the best Windows PC on the market.”

“There are definite disadvantages to using Windows on Mac. First – there’s more work to do (buy windows, set-up BootCamp, install Windows, etc). Also, the keyboard is not optimized for Windows (e.g. no Del key), and there may be driver issues,” Soluto reports. “But on the other hand, the Mac has an amazing trackpad unparalleled by any PC, and has a very solid build.”

“And some people think Mac users look smarter,” Soluto reports. “So if you’ve ever looked for an excuse to buy a MacBook – now you have it.”

MacDailyNews Take: Wholly unsurprising, but funny nonetheless. Macs even run crapware the best.

And, not only do Mac users look smarter, they are smarter.

  1. Not a list you really want to show to a Windows fan. Any Windows enthusiast will simply note you can buy 4 Acers for the price of one MacBook – another sad but true fact. This list also clearly shows why Apple has the highest profit margins of any company.

  2. Windows is shit. In my job at a large investment bank I have to use Windows, by choice at home I use OS X.

    It’s a pile of steaming shit layered upon another like of steaming shit, ad infinitum.

  3. Yep! We replaced a dozen desktop computers with iMac’s that boot to Windows (for various reasons), and our IT costs have since dropped dramatically. A Mac is indeed te BEST Windows computer you can buy.

    1. What Buster said.
      Similarly, in Britain, corporations are considered plural when matching a verb, while in the USA corporations use the singular form: “Apple is planning to….”
      If you are going to pick nits in English, you should really avoid doing so with reasonable evolutions that have become accepted.

  4. The above discussions about how many PCs can be bought for the price of a Mac leave out the critically important measurement of likely mean time before failure. We had the top of the line Dell laptop (for a price over $3,100) Main processor melted down at 6 months. Cooling systems failed. Over the three years of service warranty, the machine failed repeatedly, and often in new and interesting ways. I got to know the repair person on a first name basis. I recommend the macs. Period. I have the retina display 15″ MacBookPro. Mine is bigger than yours, better than yours, and faster than yours.
