Apple gets an 'A' in the Computer Reliability Report

by appleworld | September 10, 2015

RESCUECOM has released its 2015 Q2 Computer Reliability Report. As usual, Samsung and Apple top the list.

Apple gets a grade of "A," while Samsung gets an "A+." On the previous Computer Reliability Report, Apple received an "A-." In 2014, the company topped the list with a score of “A+.” If you remove tablets from the rankings, Apple leads all personal computer makers.

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 or not on the market for at least one year.
3 – Market share numbers are provided by IDC.

RESCUECOM says Dell has seen improvement this year — from being one of the worst performers in prior years, while HP's reliability score continues to drop. Amazon is missing due to a drop in popularity of its tablets, while Microsoft ranks in the median due to its production of the Surface tablet.

While IBM/Lenovo had been gaining ground on Apple and Samsung, its score did not increase as much as either of theirs, keeping it in third place. The middle rankings belong to Microsoft and Asus, a familiar spot for Asus and Microsoft's first inclusion in the report.

RESCUECOM calculates reliability scores by contrasting a manufacturer's market share of computers and tablets to the number of tech support calls for those devices. IBM/Lenovo's grade is a "B+," Microsoft's is a "B," Asus is a "C+," Dell's a "C," Toshiba's a "C-," Acer's a "D," and HP's an "F."

...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
