    LMAO! They don't even have Panasonic listed!

    Who makes the most reliable laptops? | Crave - CNET

    I'd be willing to place bets that Panasonic would have 3-5 times the reliability of any other brand if they actually did a study... God forbid we go back to THIS thread... :D

    Yeah well... there's 30 seconds (Well, now 90 seconds, with this post) of my life I'll never get back. What a waste of cyberspace. Why even bother to post that? It's like saying "It doesn't matter what brand of car you buy - they're all the same under the paint."

    Ducktards.

    And I'm the ducktard who bothers to...

    Maybe it's a reliability survey of laptops makes that are known to be unreliable?

    I suppose that's unfair (I actually like some non-Panasonic laptops), but omitting Panasonic does seem quite the oversight.

    Then again, relatively few end-users buy a new Panasonic laptop. It seems that organizations buy them, and we all get them secondhand. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but that puts us in a different category than users of the makes listed.

    It's amazing to think that they really are ALL the same EXCEPT for Panasonic!! LMFAO! They have NO CLUE because they've N-E-V-E-R actually used them! Let alone taken them apart!

    Well, some of us get them second hand... :D... I like the idea of NEW Toughbooks...

    Rob if they included Panasonic then it would have skewed their numbers and then they would have disproved their own theory that all laptops are basically the same regardless of manufacturer. "Statistics don't lie and liars use statistics".

    Just read a thread on another forum saying consumer reports is useless. I think if toughbooks were on that list they would actually be fairly hight on repairs because they actually get used.

    I'd be surprised if Panasonic shared 1% of laptop sales.....so there is that. I mean, otherwise, every rugged notebook manufacturer would be on top of that list methinks.

    Does apple still build their own stuff, or is it an asian mill product nowadays?

    I don't have much problem w/chinese circuit boards, but it's when you have 3 single companies producing everything for everyone that they start spreading their resources a little too thin and quality starts taking a turn. Not to mention the clients cost-cutting measure to populate said circuit boards w/the lowest bidder components.

    Yeah, well... If it puts it in my price range, I'll take a used HUMVEE too, as long as they leave the .50 cal mount intact and it doesn't have too many shrapnel holes...

    Now where'd I put that JATO rocket...?
