    The same goes for clevo, gigabyte, Razer and alienware. All notebooks are terrible out of the box experiences.

    Hell even if you buy an acer predator 21x which is a 9.000USD machine, if you put OC to turbo, it will literally throttle the entire system. That's how much nobody cares.

    They gave Apple an A+ - that's enough for me to laugh and call BS.

    Well I've never had any worse laptop than ASUS. Returned 7 of their ROG laptops until I finally gave up on the brand and looked elsewhere. My laptops were always at the service center more than the total time I actually used them. Talking about brand new laptops like G75VW, G750JX, G751JY, just to name a few

    Gigabyte and razer somehow managed to make it even worse. I'm not even kidding. They surpassed the awfulness of the Asus brand... But apparently the guys who bought the desktop Ryzen notebook are completely satisfied and never had any issues after a simple repaste. So apparently there are some exceptions to the notebooks.

    Don't have any experience with those 2 brands. The Razers look nice and the specs are decent but I wish they were more reliable and had better cooling. MSI FTW! The most reliable laptop I've ever owned. Period!

    I chewed through almost all brands, MSI by far the best and most reliable. No doubt. Got a clevo because I somehow wanted to challenge myself to make it equal to my GT 72. Trust me, it's not easy :'D

    Apple may actually be reliable, but when something does break its nigh impossible to repair it. I'd rather take something with patchy reliability that I can actually fix myself than something which will turn into a 3000 quid paperweight whenever something fails.

    It's low end hardware. Obviously it doens't break fast. There is almost nothing to break. It's impressive if anything that is does break. it's the same as those low end HP and Asus notebooks with celeron CPU's and stuff, they are indestructable.

    I have a Mac air for 3 yrs. the reason I bought it because my friend told me it was very reliable and you don't need to change the laptop for 5 yrs at least cause it can still run pretty well and stable.

    However, i can never get used to the system. I am impressed and like a lot its mouse pad. Very convenient and user friendly. I don't need to have to plug in a mouse to navigate around pretty smoothly.

    The thing is...since I still can't get used to the system, now I only use my mac air to watch movies...I can't even use the Evernote now cause I update the app in order to fix the photo sudden disappear issue. I did that but it turns out that I still need to update the OS to a certain version. I stop at this step cause I am afraid something will go wrong...

    So, I am actually thinking about to have to a regular laptop now.
