Macbook Pro

Macbook ProA report from PC services company Soluto claims the “best performing” Windows laptop is one that wasn’t primarily made to be used with Windows: Apple’s MacBook Pro. In creating this report, Soluto claims to have looked at 150,000 laptops, 224,144 crashes and 84,251 blue screens during three months. The result? Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Pro from mid-2012 had the fewest crashes per week and hangs per week, with a total score of 1.05 (less is better). It’s followed by a 15-inch Acer Aspire E1-571 with a 1.12 score and a Dell XPS 13, whose score was 1.28. Soluto readily admits that the MacBook pro has a clear advantage. “A main factor in this machine’s metrics is the fact that 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,” says the report.
