Apple Daily Report
August 19, 2014


The results are in for RESCUECOM’s 2014 Q2 Computer Reliability Report, and has Apple in second place. The report includes computers and tablet. While it’s hard to believe that the Cupertino, California-based company didn’t take first place, it still moved up from the third spot in the previous survey.

RESCUECOM’s Computer Reliability Report for the second quarter of 2014 shows Samsung maintaining its position as the top manufacturer in computer reliability. Samsung kept its spot at the top of the reliability rankings for the second straight quarter, holding firm against its competition. Samsung was the only manufacturer that managed to obtain a reliability grade of A+.

RESCUECOM says Apple has climbed to the number two position in reliability after another strong quarter. The company received a reliability grade of A.

1 - Computer repair share percentages and computer reliability scores include tablets. 2 – The computer reliability report does not include “other” manufacturers, defined as all manufacturers that have below 1.0% market share. 3 - Market share numbers are provided by IDC.

Asus made the largest gain of any manufacturer this quarter. The company’s reliability score jumped up 32 points from the previous report. Asus was sixth place in the reliability rankings for the first quarter of 2014. However, the company ascended to third place for the second quarter.

RESCUECOM determines computer reliability scores by comparing the market share of a manufacturer’s shipped computers and tablets to the percentage of computer repair and tablet repair calls received by RESCUECOM’s Certified Level-3 Technicians for that manufacturer’s products.

...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
