LaptopMag Claims Apple No Longer Top Brand, Lenovo Takes The Title
LaptopMag covers, well, laptops. They’re one of the leading review sites that focus on laptops solely. Not to mention they’re a part of Tom’s Guide, which is the leading place to find reviews and product recommendations. LaptopMag released a new list of the best and worst laptop brands. You’d expect to see Apple at the top of the list, right? According to LaptopMag, Apple has fallen to number 5 on the list while Lenovo has taken the crown.
Apple’s had a strong couple of years, but they’ve been mired with concerns they’re not innovating or focusing on their loyal fan base of professionals. Those professionals include videographers, photographers, bloggers, artist and other creatives. Microsoft has taken to appealing to them with the Surface Studio and other laptops. Lenovo has started making beautiful, thin, but yet still powerful laptops. It looks like this strategy has paid off, at least in the short term.
LaptopMag crowns Lenovo the top brand while Apple slips to number 5
Now you may ask, “how do you measure the strength of a laptop brand, besides asking customers?” LaptopMag takes into account; features, customer support, design quality, and, price. Those are the very things Apple has been known for, which is why Apple managed to hold onto the top title for so long. The list started in 2010, with Apple holding the spot until 2016. That’s a six-year run, but this year they slipped below Lenovo, ASUS, Dell, HP, and tied with Acer for the 5th spot.
Apple is still above MSI, Razer, Samsung and Microsoft. Lenovo taking the top spot is surprising, but expected as they’ve been jumping to the top for a couple of years. Last year, Lenovo was the 4th brand on the list, below Apple, Dell and ASUS.
