MacBook Drops to 7th in LAPTOP's 2018 Rankings [Chart]

Apple has dropped to seventh place in LAPTOP's recent ranking of 'Best & Worst Laptop Brands' for 2018. The site ranks Lenovo, HP, and Dell as the best performing notebook brands.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen! Apple just doesn't seem as focused on its laptop business as it used to be. The company did nothing to innovate or even tweak its designs in the past year, and only one of the company's laptops earned an Editors' Choice award. However, Tim Cook's company still has the best tech support you can get.

Here's some of the reasons LAPTOP lists for ranking Apple seventh...

Apple's Key Strengths
● Tech Support: Still the standard-bearer
● macOS moves forward: The subtle changes of a new file system and new media-compression codecs to save space make for a smoother ride.

Apple's Main Weaknesses
● Hardware stuck in the sand: The MacBooks are good machines but saw barely any improvement, just minor speed boosts. Where's the love for touch screens?
● Minimal selection: Apple's sole sub-$1,000 laptop is the company's super-outdated $999 MacBook Air, and all of Apple's other laptops start at $1,299, pricing many customers out of the land of the Mac.
● Dongles, all the way down: You can't get USB 3.0 ports on Apple's modern Type-C-only MacBooks, while the MacBook Air has no Type-C ports, only a Type-A port.

The macbook was famous for its magsafe port, glowing logo, advanced hardware of its time. Tim Cook took that all away and replace it with usbC only port, touch bar, gimicks, over pricing it, etc. what do you expect will happen?

...and the keyboards of the new macbook pro (cough) are really really broken y design...and -for the first time- the trackpad doesn't work well either... i think it just got too big now and doesn't detect unintentional touches well enough... and yes: the touchbar is a useless gimmick!

What did Apple think was going to happened when they start taking things away and making people buy extra crap like dongles to feed their fat asses? Duhh!!!
