2012 Computer reliability report



/ 7 years ago

The company Rescuecom has put together a report which attempts to assess the reliability of ready-built computer systems by taking into considering the number of support phonecalls recieved for owners of those computers in relation to the number of computers that manufacturer recieves. The results are summarised below and a higher score means better reliability.

“Entering 2012, Lenovo/IBM’s rise in reliability will be an important boost for the company. Although Apple’s market share has risen over the last 12 months, its reliability has declined. The comparatively smaller Toshiba and Samsung are illustrating interesting reliability trends worth watching over the coming year,” stated David Milman, CEO of RESCUECOM. For 2012, Rescuecom now includes all manufacturers with a market share of at least above one percent in this report.

The computer reliability report scores for 2012 are as follows:

1. Lenovo/IBM (281)
2. Toshiba (190)
3. Samsung (156)
4. Apple (151)
5. Asus (126)
6. HP/Compaq (100)
7. Dell (68)
8. Sony (64)
9. Acer (40)

The Rescuecom Computer Repair Share Score is calculated by taking the U.S. Computer Market Share of the manufacturer, dividing it by the percentage of calls Rescuecom receives for service of the manufacturers and multiplying by 100. By considering the number of service calls as a function of each manufacturer’s market strength, Rescuecom is able to determine and score the reliability of computer manufacturers.

In analyzing the computer reliability scores for 2012, RESCUECOM sees the market making important shifts. It will be worth watching Samsung to see if they can maintain reliability as their market share continues its ascent. Over the years Lenovo/IBM has performed well on the Rescuecom reliability report, while Dell, HP and Acer have suffered declines.

The most reliable computer manufacturers (in order of reliability), along with the data which was used to calculate reliability scores are as follows:
