Laptop 3 Year Failure Rate by Brand

. Monday, November 23


A heavy sigh of relief. My laptop is a Toshiba.

As the study was compiled, 20 percent of the laptop failures are hardware malfunctions, and 10 percent are due to drops, spills and other accidental damage.

Right up there with cell phones, the typical laptop is used and abused more than any other electronic device.

Want to keep your laptop running for more than a few years?  Use a padded case, route cords so that they won’t be tripped on, keep children away from it, and protect the laptop from heat and dust.
