Is the MacBook Pro really the best Windows laptop?

June 5, 2013
Want to get the laptop that best runs Windows software? Then you might have to invest in a 13-inch MacBook Pro. At least that’s the advice from PC services company Soluto, which recently ranked Windows laptops. Yes, it is strange that the best-performing Windows laptop is in fact made by Microsoft’s big rival, Apple.


The Report

Tech Web site CNET recently documented on Soluto’s findings. The company conducted what it terms “frustration analytics” on laptops that run Windows software. Established PC makers were left behind by the MacBook Pro.


Better Performance

Soluto researchers discovered that Windows programs were simply less buggy when installed and run on a MacBook Pro. And, yes, this should be embarrassing for Microsoft. Traditional PC makers such as Acer and Dell ranked behind the MacBook Pro.


Fewer Crashes

To reach its conclusions, Soluto studied the amount of crashes per week that Windows laptops suffered, the number of hang-ups they went through and the average boot time of the computers. The research also looked at how frequent Blue Screens — better known as Blue Screens of Death — were on top-selling Windows laptops.
