IBM/Lenovo computers jumped into first place in RESCUECOM's latest quarterly ratings for reliability.

Asus came in second, and Apple came in third.

"Apple, last year's overall leader, improved its reliability score, but that still wasn't good enough to maintain the top spot in the first quarter of 2010; instead Apple dropped to third place. IBM/Lenovo decidedly took first place improving their score over 200 points from their average last year. Not to be forgotten, Asus also posted significant gains and took second place. Rounding out the top five were Toshiba and HP/Compaq, respectively,"Josh Kaplan, President of RESCUECOM said.

" As 2010 progresses it will be interesting to see which manufacturers can maintain their gains which ones may fall due to increased need for computer repair," he said in his statement.

"RESCUECOM believes computer reliability should be measured based on two fundamentals. The first being the quality of the components and software used in manufacturing the computer. And the second is the after sale support the manufacturer provides to its customers.

"How exactly does RESCUECOM measure these fundamentals to calculate an unbiased reliability score for each manufacturer? The calculation is quite simple: The number of computers an individual manufacturer ships is weighed against the number of computer repair calls RESCUECOM handles for that same manufacturer. These nationwide numbers are recalculated each quarter and the higher the score, the greater the reliability.

"In this economy, consumers and business owners want to know a computer is reliable before they invest hard-earned dollars," says David A. Milman, CEO of RESCUECOM. "Our reports are intended to empower consumers when they head out to make purchasing decisions. Since technology develops at a rapid pace, our quarterly analyses provide a timely resource."

Once again, the top five contenders and their computer reliability scores for the 2010 first quarter Computer Reliability Report are as follows:

1. IBM/Lenovo (521)

2. Asus (446)

3. Apple (382)

4. Toshiba (262)

5. HP/Compaq (217)

...When I say, I am truely expressed. David and his team are a blessing in disguise. I was just hired for a work at home postion. My compter had several, multiple virues. David stayed with me over the phone to fix, and resolve the issues. His personality and the ability to show me what not to install, was comforting. I'm greatly appreciative of RUSCUECOM. less

...When I called my compute was completely dead. Going away on Sunday and needed to have access to my computer to get emails out before I left. I talked with T and she was very pleasant and understanding. Take all my information and had tech David call me back. Davis was so awesome and worked with me to get to the point were he could take over my machine. I am so thankful for David he was patience, understand, working with me. He went above and beyond to ensure me that everything will be okay and he would work all night if he had to get my computer fixed. I worked as a supervisor, office manager for many years, I would have been delighted to have David on my team. Once again I am thankful I gave rescue Com I have never any problems with any of the techs. I really appreciate David approach to customer service. Once again he was AWESOME! less
