As the holiday shopping season approaches, here's something to keep in mind.

Research Triangle Park-based Lenovo/IBM has been rated as the most reliable computer manufacturer by Rescuecom, a national computer repair and support company. Apple was a pretty close second. Far behind were, in order, HP/Compaq, Dell, Gateway and others.

Rescuecom based its rankings on a comparison of the 20,000 calls it received for laptop service and the manufacturers' market share.

Although hardware quality plays some role, the company pointed out that vendors' customer support could be a factor in its results. The idea: Customers who receive good customer support from their computers' manufacturers would be less likely to call a third-party repair operation.

...This was my first experience with Rescuecom. I got a tech named Roy.He was amazing! He was knowledgeable, patient, with excellent customer service skills. While fixing my machine, he built great rapport to avoid dead air. He was so detailed oriented that he even concluded that I wore glasses simply because my fonts were SLIGHTLY larger. He went above and beyond by ensuring that my virus infected machine was cleaned to perfection to include edge, IE, google chrome etc...I will request him every time. You should also! less
