Nearly 1 in 3 Laptops fail over 3 years

SquareTrade analyzed failure rates for over 30,000 new laptop computers covered by SquareTrade Laptop Warranty plans and found that one-third of all laptops will fail within 3 years. SquareTrade also found that netbooks are 20% more unreliable than other laptops, and that Asus and Toshiba are the most reliable laptop brands.

    Considering the amount of models and families they are selling, even thousands are statistically not significant (every family have different issues) – but hey, good luck :-) I like new Asus models too, may be even testing one of them soon 😉
