SYRACUSE, N.Y., Aug 30, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- RESCUECOM's Computer Reliability Report has seen a shake up at the top. Asus, which finished in second place for the first quarter of this year, saw a massive jump in its reliability score propel it into first place. IBM/Lenovo improved their scores as well, but slipped to third. Toshiba and HP/Compaq remained fourth and fifth, respectively. All eyes will be on Asus to see if it can maintain its significant jump, or if more of its customers will seek computer repair.

The RESCUECOM Reliability Report is based on two fundamentals: the quality of the computer and the quality of the support provided by the manufacturer. In other words, are the hardware and software components of the computer made to last, and does the manufacturer provide quality computer support when something goes wrong.

These fundamentals are used to calculate an unbiased reliability score for each manufacturer. With nationwide computer repair service for all makes and models, RESCUECOM is able to examine reliability across all brand lines. "We don't discriminate," says RESCUECOM President Josh Kaplan. "We judge every manufacturer based solely on the performance we've seen." Asus' over 1300 point jump may not be a reflection of the reliability of its machines. "Many of Asus' computers are entry level 'eee' machines or inexpensive netbooks," says RESCUECOM CEO David Milman. "Consumers may choose to simply replace those machines rather than invest in computer service." The steady performance of companies like Apple and IBM/Lenovo, says Kaplan, might be a stronger indicator. "It's not just their computers that are reliable, either," he says. "Fewer calls for computer repair means that either their machines aren't breaking down, or their tech support is doing such an excellent job that consumers don't need to go anywhere else." The RESCUECOM Computer Reliability Report is a timely consumer resource, given the current economy. "Consumers are placing a high premium on reliability," says Milman. "They need products that make sense for their budget, and helping them find reliable computers can make that happen." The Top 5 results for the 2010 2nd Quarter Computer Reliability Report are as follows: U.S. Computer Manufacturer Market RESCUECOM Repair Computer Share (Percentage Shares of (Percentage of Reliability Share computers service calls to Score shipped) (703) 986-3233) Asus 3.5% 0.2% 1791 Apple 9.0% 1.3% 686 IBM/Lenovo 4.9% 0.9% 524 Toshiba 8.4% 2.3% 368 ------- --- --- --- HP/Compaq 25.5% 9.1% 281 --------- ---- --- --- Data Source: IDC Complete Top 10 results are available on The RESCUECOM Computer Reliability Report for 2010.

...I am so thankful for Rescuecom for saving my computer and my sanity. I spent a week trying to remove viruses from my computer with a program I bought online that promised 24/7 premium customer service and that was a lie. This company is the real deal. I received immediate help, within a minute of me signing up and David was very kind and knowledgeable and once my computer finished its scan 7 hrs later I immediately received another call from Roy to complete the next step. All I had to do was give him access to my computer and he did the rest of the work while I did other things. He called me as soon as he was done and then went over everything with me and helped me with issues I was having with my gmail account. Exemplary customer service and highly skilled technicians and peace of mind for me, I am extremely grateful and I am now a customer for life! less

...I am thoroughly impressed with this company. The attention to detail, a high level of professionalism, and sticking with some rather pesky problems until both the technician and I were satisfied with the results. Bravo! less
