Are Macs Better Than PCs at Being PCs?
The tech firm Soluto performed an analysis of 150,000 laptops running Microsoft’s (NASDAQ:MSFT) Windows operating system, keeping track of “application crashes, application hangs, blue-screens-of-death, boot time, and number of background processes” — and the Mac won!
According to Soluto’s report, “if you’re looking for top reliability — the data is clear. MacBook Pro is the best Windows PC on the market.” Specifically, the MacBook Pro 13-inch from mid-2012. That is followed by an Acer laptop in second place and a Dell (NASDAQ:DELL) laptop in third.
There are some problems with the way Soluto reached its results, as it wasn’t exactly a fair match-up in terms of the way the operating systems were installed.
