MacBook Pro is the best Windows machine

Written by Nick Farrell



Survey pushes logic

A PC-monitoring-as-a-service company, Soluto, has just released the surprising news that a MacBook Pro is the most reliable Windows machine. The information is based on an agent that Soluto users install an agent on their PCs. The company claims it is installed on millions of machines.

 

Between January 1 to April 1 of 2012 there were 224,144 crashes, 250,791 non-responsive events, and 84,251 blue screens of death. The MacBook Pro recorded just 0.88 crashes a week and 1.06 hangs over the same period. Blue Screens of Death at .01 a week and an average of 60 processes run on the fruity 'puters.

Of course there are a few problems with the survey. Firstly there would be a lot fewer MacBook Pro’s out there to compare with the others in the top ten. MacBook Pros are also unlikely to be running Windows all the time. Soluto said that Macs scored well because every Windows installation on it is clean. With PC manufacturers loading so much crapware on new laptops, this is a bit of an unfair competition.

Windows-on-Mac experience suffers from poor drivers and the lack of a Windows button on the keyboard, which make it pretty useless in otherways.
