PC services company Soluto released a Windows laptop ranking that has an Apple MacBook Pro in the lead. Soluto's is basing the ranking on their big-data frustration analytics. This is interesting because it is based on long term, ongoing analysis of a huge number of PCs, taking into account events such as application crashes, application hangs, blue-screens-of-death, long boot times and excessive number of background processes.
The MacBook Pro laptops in the field usually have a clean Windows installation, which helps to run fast and stable. Maybe this blow in the face for PC makers will motivate them to pre-install clean Windows 8 installation and kill bloatware. Of course cost is another factor. Apple's build quality is expensive, but according to results worth it. Is it worth 3x the cost of the #2 laptop is though questionable.
The #2 spot in the ranking goes to Acer and the #3 spot manage to grab Dell.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
