As for me, my Mac has been fine and still is, but then again so are my windows laptops too. All devices will have a % failure rate, some of us will just be unlucky enough to be the ones making up that number
I suppose that is true. Then I guess what we are looking at here is that the % rate of a Mac failing is lower than the % rate of a PC failing. Of course, I could be wrong. I am basing this on my experience and the knowledge I have from the people around me with Macs.
