This isn’t a joke: A MacBook ranks as best Windows laptop

Another humiliation for Microsoft? Looks like it. Following the critical drubbing the company has had for Windows 8, a PC services company has now ranked the 13-inch MacBook Pro as being the laptop that does the best job running Windows software. And, yes, the MacBook Pro is manufactured by Microsoft rival Apple.

The Report

CNET recently reported on a study by Soluto that looked at the frequency of frustrating events on Windows laptops. The study examined everything from crashes to blue screens to hang-ups. The laptop that experienced the fewest of those annoying events? The 13-inch MacBook Pro.

Clean Installation

The main benefit of running Windows on a MacBook? According to Soluto, the Windows programs placed on the machine run cleanly. Simply put, they run as they are advertised.

Crashes Per Week

According to Soluto, the MacBook Pro suffered fewer crashes, hang-ups and blue screens when running Windows software. The MacBook also booted at a faster rate. Just what does this suggest? Only that Microsoft’s rough patch continues.
