Hardware, Embedded Systems Who makes the most reliable computers? Lenovo, closely followed by Apple, if you believe online service and support company Rescuecom's latest reliability audit, derived from more than 20,000 calls made by the firm's customers during the second quarter this year. Rescuecom assigned a reliability rating to computer vendors. Lenovo, in its guise as provider of IBM desktops and notebooks, scored 243. Apple attained 201. Third-placed HP/Compaq scored a mere 12. Dell's rating was 4, Gateway -12 and all the rest together scored -16.

A PC is more than just a total of those parts, it's also the choice of wiring, switches, case, screws and so on. Not to mention the standards/circumstances under which they are assembled. I have 2 IBM PC's: one 7 year old Aptiva (intensively used) which has only needed a new CPU fan...the battery still doesn't need to be replaced. The other (a year younger Netvista) never gave me any problem. And I guess no flat screens for me the coming 7 years or so, as my monitors are two chunky 4 year old G78's that I estimate will still run after being thrown of the staircase.
