Actually, the same local big U's very busy computer store discretely recommends Lenovo as the make that has proven most reliable.

That Lenovo and formerly IBM Thinkpads (not IdeaPads or even Thinkpad Edges) are the most reliable laptops on the market is no secret. They're built like tanks and sold at reasonable prices (often with three-year NBD warranties for no extra cost) to boot.

Must be somewhat of a secret, because Consumer Reports gave Apple a score of 78% for customer satisfaction, with Dell & Lenovo at 59%. It mentions the iMac repair rate at 7%, but not Lenovo's, which is presumably higher than Gateway (13%), which it does mention.

In a survey by the American Customer Satisfaction Index, Lenovo didn't even make the list, being lumped into 'others'.

And in PCWorld's most recent survey, Apple is #1 for reliability, with Lenovo in 4th place, although the scores were very close. However, unresolved problems were just 4% for Apple and 17% for Lenovo.
