Each year, the folks over at Laptop Mag review the top notebook manufacturers to establish their Best and Word Laptop Brand ranking. And for the past six years, Apple has been consistently claiming the top spot thanks to what Laptop Mag saw as a nice combination of stylish designs, valuable innovations and helpful support.
Except that this year, Apple dropped to fifth place (tied with Acer) in the yearly ranking, reflecting the much talked-about lack of innovation in the latest MacBook Pros. “Because of its modest review scores, expensive products and lack of ports, Apple fell all the way down to fifth place after receiving top honors every year since the Best and Worst Brands debuted in 2010,” explained Laptop Mag. As you can see below, Lenovo now ranks first with a score of 90, followed by Asus (86) and Dell (83)
