Ever wondered why laptops are not lasting these days as much as they used to? There is a study for that. Square Trade has taken the hardship of an extended survey into failure/malfunction rate of laptops and netbooks and has come up with an interesting report. The report suggests that as much as about 30% of laptops kinda fail/malfunction during first three years after their purchase. What more? some brands (Asus, Toshiba, Sony) are more reliable than others. Moreover, the more you pay, the less the trouble that you would have with your laptop (Premium laptops fails less frequently than mainstream laptops and mainstream laptops fail less than netbooks). Wanna read the report in full? Here you can find it.
