Default Apple Comes in Fourth

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.electronista.com/articles/09/11/17/reliability.study.has.apple.4th.place/' target='_blank'>http://www.electronista.com/article...pple.4th.place/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple is fairly reliable, but not the most reliable company of all when it comes to notebooks, according to a new study by research firm SquareTrade. The top honor goes to Asus, which surprised me, but I suppose shouldn't have when I consider the build quality of my fairly inexpensive Eee PC. Toshiba and Sony rank next most reliable, with Apple coming in a close fourth."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1258590273.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Netbooks suffer higher failure rates than regular or "premium" laptops however, failing 25.1%, 20.6% and 18.1% respectively over a three year period (the one year figures follow same pattern). They also note that overall, during a three year period, laptops in general will fail roughly 30% of the time because they are portable thus subject to more abuse either intentional or accidental.&nbsp;</p>
