They’re not kidding: A MacBook named the best Windows laptop

July 8th, 2013

Poor Microsoft. The company has already been struggling with the bomb that is Windows 8. And now, according to PC services company Soluto, the 13-inch MacBook Pro, manufactured by chief rival Apple, is the best-performing Windows laptop. That hurts.

The Report

CNET recently reported on a study by Soluto that studied the frequency of frustrating events on Windows laptops. The study investigated everything from crashes to blue screens to hang-ups. The laptop that experienced the fewest of these irritating events? The 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Clean Installation

Soluto researchers discovered that Windows programs were simply less buggy when installed and run on a MacBook Pro. And, yes, this should be awkward for Microsoft. Traditional PC makers such as Acer and Dell ranked behind the MacBook Pro.

Fewer Frustrations

According to Soluto, the MacBook Pro encountered fewer crashes, hang-ups and blue screens when running Windows software. The MacBook also booted at a faster rate. Just what does this mean? Just that Microsoft’s rough patch continues.
