Happy Cinco de Mayo, Apple! In Consumer Reports’ upcoming June issue, Apple tops all three categories for notebook computers.
In the 13in category, the Unibody MacBook beat out 5 other notebooks—though the list included both the MacBook Air Solid State Drive and the plastic-cased MacBook in the #2 and #3 spots! In the 14-16in category, the 15in MacBook Pro beat out PCs from Toshiba, Sony and Dell.
Finally, in the 17-18in category—you guessed it—the 17in MacBook Pro beat out comparable models from Dell, Lenovo, HP and Toshiba. The 17” MacBook Pro won out by the largest margin across the three categories—16 points. It’s also notable to point out that the 4th place machine, the HP Pavilion dv7, is the computer that “Lauren” buys in the Microsoft Laptop Hunters commercial.
Rounding out the survey, Apple also scored top marks in their tech support for the AppleCare Protection Plan. The iMac and Mac mini were also featured in the list of desktops, though were narrowly beaten by other PC models.
