MS Surface is the worst Laptop

Postby viking60 » 10 Aug 2017, 22:23

Consumer Reports does not recommend Microsoft Surface anymore because it is the most likely Laptop to break.
Apple tops the list.

CR matters in the US market so this is bad news for MS who surprisingly do not agree with CR's conclusions;
Microsoft’s real-world return and support rates for past models differ significantly from Consumer Reports’ breakage predictability,” Microsoft said in an emailed statement. “We don’t believe these findings accurately reflect Surface owners’ true experiences or capture the performance and reliability improvements made with every Surface generation

Yeah but I guess that Microsoft has got the money though. :confused
I would never dream of buying Microsoft dedicated hardware because it is likely to shut out every other OS.

Apple had problems with CR too but fixed the problems with CR and ended up on top - I guess they have more money than MS....

I don't take that rating too seriously either. Lenovo is known to be Linux friendly and does work fine here so far but ironically all "problems" rated in CR would probably be Windows related.

The Empire strikes back :starwars2
Microsoft stands behind Surface so CR is wrong....
The Surface Team’s mission is and has always been to make devices that deliver great experiences to our customers and fans. It’s the motivation for everything we do, and we are proud of the Surface devices we have built.

there that showed them. +1

MS produces statistics that show that consumers are extremely satisfied with surface... so that ends that discussion....

I know it because MS has told me again and again that I can trust them...

I would surely buy a Surface if it booted Linux... :tux5: We all know that MS love Linux and that we can trust them...so why not?
