The upcoming (June 2007) print edition of Consumer Reports magazine gives high praise and high rankings to Macs in both the notebook and desktop categories. Of course, this comes as no surprise to Mac users, but it’s always nice to see objective rankings to back up what we already know.
The 15" MacBook Pro was the top-rated notebook in the workhorse models category, beating out 10 other portable models. The 20" iMac desktop was ranked third overall and given "Quick Pick" designation in the workhorse models category.
Also, based on feedback given by over 77,000 Consumer Reports readers, Apple was the top ranked manufacturer. Finally, Consumer Reports described Apple’s Tech Support as "superior". All of these are more objective reasons to consider making the move to a Mac.
