Apple has managed to pull ahead of Samsung for the top rank this quarter. However, the companies were extremely close in reliability and both have received grades of “A+”. These two manufacturers are consistently at the top of the rankings for computer and tablet reliability, and either is a solid choice for a dependable machine.

RESCUECOM CEO David Milman notes, “Lenovo, a stalwart in reliability, comes in at a solid third. This is interesting since they just purchased the server business from IBM.” IBM/Lenovo has proven itself quite dependable, placing third in reliability with a commendable grade of “A-”. Asus and Toshiba round out the top five, both maintaining relatively high grades.

Bringing up the final three positions are Acer, Dell, and HP. “Acer has moved up in quality by a large margin over previous reports,” comments Milman. Worth noting, Acer was in dead last in Q2 and was the only company to receive a grade of “F”. This grade moved all the way up to a “C” this quarter, and the company jumped ahead of both HP and Dell in ranking.

Be sure to consider how reliable a manufacturer is thoroughly before picking out a new computer or tablet! RESCUECOM’s reliability grades will surely be a useful tool for anyone looking to make an informed choice when it comes to technology this holiday season.
