On the heels of their Mac mini reliability survey, Macintouch today published the results of the PowerMac G5 reliability survey. While the numbers aren’t as good as for the mini, they are still good; of the 6817 respondents to their unscientific web poll, only 10.17 percent reported having problems. Anyone know of any similar reliability surveys for Dell, HP, or Gateway hardware?
I think it’s also worth noting that the people who read Macintouch — the true Geeks of the Mac support industry — and would respond to this survey are more likely than the average user to have seen a machine failure of some sort. So if the 10 percent figure is off at all, it’s likely to be a bit on the high side.
You know, after reading this, and knowing that Macs are less expensive than PC’s, are all but immune to spyware, viruses & worms, and are capable of doing most if not all of the tasks the average user needs done, makes one wonder why more people don’t use Apple computers.
Let the flame fest begin.
