In what has been met with piqued interests, an IT company offering management services recently named Apple’s MacBook Pro as the “Best Performing Windows Laptop”.
A long term analysis of different PC brands were part of Saluto’s “in the field” tests, taking into account how well a specific model is liable for regular system crashes, how fast a system boots and how quick it tends to slow down.
At the top of its overall tests would be the MacBook Pro 13 (released in mid 2012), followed by Acer’s Aspire E1-571.
Dell’s XPS13 and the brand’sVostro 3560 respectively followed the top two, with Acer’s Aspire V3-771, Apple’s MacBook Pro 15 (Retina Display), Dell’s Inspiron 14z, the Dell Latitude E5530, Vostro 3460 and Lenovo’s Thinkpad X1 Carbon following after.
The report notes that “The MacBook Pro is the most expensive PC among the top 3, but if you’re looking for top reliability – the data is clear. MacBook Pro is the best Windows PC on the market.”
Arguably, the report also shares that the comparison of the respective system’s performances isn’t exactly considered to be fair, given that the MacBook Pro Windows installation they based their test analysis on was free from pre-loaded bloatware.
The report also shares that the utilization of PC virtualization, as well as some adjustments on the keyboard mapping base of the MacBook does come as a “downside”, but, as its overall report shows, it is convinced that the MacBook Pro is the best performing Windows laptop.
Any thoughts on the “in the field” tests and its results?
