SquareTrade is a warranty company that services laptops, among other products. The company studied laptop malfunction rates over 3 years to determine which were the most reliable.
From most to least reliable:
- Acer (owns eMachines)
- HP (owns Compaq)
Of course, you don’t want to buy a laptop based on a single factor. You also need to consider price and features. For example, Sony products usually carry a price premium. And although Apple laptops are more reliable than average, they’re also expensive, and run the Mac operating system (although you can install Windows, if you choose).
