The guys at Soluto, did a study where they demonstrated which were the most trustful laptops to run Windows. The big surprise is that the best one to run Windows is the Apple MacBook Pro 13″ from mid 2012.
The report was constructed based on 150.000 analyzed (laptops, netbooks & ultrabooks) between January 1st 2013 and April 1st 2013, considering 224,144 crashes and 84,251 blue-screens. Other things contemplated during the test were: applications hangs, boot times and number of background processes. The OS of these selected group of laptops had to be installed in the past 12 months and the models of the devices had to be currently sold too.
This confirms (again) how well Apple computers are built. The downside; they are also the most expensive.
I personally took the decision to migrate to a MacBook Pro, I don’t know when I am going to be able to do the switch for several reasons, but I will change and run Windows on a VirtualBox or Parallels environment (my job doesn’t allow me to just run OS X).
