Paradoxically, if you’re in the market for a reliable Windows computer, you shouldn’t look at HP’s, Dell’s or Acer’s product ranges. Nope, the Apple MacBook Pro 13 is the laptop you’re looking for.

At least, that’s what research firm Soluto says in a new report. The 13-inch MacBook Pro has been placed on the leading spot in a new ranking concerning the best performing Windows laptops on the market, with an overall score of 1.05 points.

Acer’s Aspire E1-571 comes second with 1.12 points, followed by Dell XPS13 with 1.28 points.

In case you’re wondering, this score was based on collected data concerning the program crashes, average boot time, background processes performance and the number of BSODs experienced per week.

According to the findings, the MacBook experienced only 0.88 crashes, 1.06 hangs, and 0.01 BSODs per week, while the average boot time was 151 seconds. Yes, that sounds like… a lot, but the Acer Aspire E1-571 is even slower when it comes to booting the operating system, with an average time of 155 seconds.
