Apple Plummets in LAPTOP Survey, Drops From 1st to 5th [Chart]

Apple has plummeted to fifth place in LAPTOP's 'Best and Worst Laptop Brands 2017' survey. The company previously held the top position each year since the study debuted in 2010. While unfortunate, the drop is not unexpected as Apple has faced considerable backlash over its new MacBook Pro.

To pick the winners, losers and also-rans, we evaluated the 10 biggest laptop brands to determine which offer the best combination of quality products, cutting-edge innovation, helpful support, sleek designs and strong value. Because of its modest review scores, expensive products and lack of ports, Apple fell all the way down to fifth place after receiving top honors every year since the Best and Worst Brands debuted in 2010.

Each company was assigned a score based on a 100-point scale. Points are awarded in six different categories: Design, Reviews, Tech Support, Warranty, Innovation and Value and Selection.

Take a look at the charts below for more details...

My roommate got a juiced up mbp on launch. Everyone in my dorm thinks he's the biggest idiot. It's practically an ipad with a keyboard. You can't connect anything to it without paying for another adapter. He said he spent close to 4K USD already. I really feel bad for him. I hope people at campus would stop calling him gay. Just because he wears an apple watch, uses an ip7 and carries an overpriced mbp doesn't mean he's going to suck your dick when you pull your pants down.

While I really like my MacBook, it's hard not to agree the latest decisions Apple has been taking don't fall on the 'idiotic' category... All the negativity they're getting is well deserved including drop in sales and damaged brand image, must be strong so they learn the lesson.

I like iMac (Mid 2010). I like to get a Apple computer for my next computer as well. But the latest generation are getting too extreme. All ports and are and need to use converter. I am not allowed to upgrade memory/SSD myself.... I really hesitate to do any upgrade. I guess I will use my iMac until it is dead.
