Edition Laptop Mag has published an annual rating “Best and worst laptop manufacturer”. In 2018 Apple took seventh place. Thus in 2017, the company ranked fifth.

Laptop Mag appreciated the support and warranty service from Apple, but criticized the technical component, and USB connectors.
Hardware is stuck in the sandbox: the MacBook is a good device, but there is nothing new, only a slight increase in performance. Where touch screens?
Minimum choice: the only Apple laptop to 1000 dollars — this is an older MacBook Air that costs $ 999. All the other laptops are from 1299 dollars, which for many is a serious barrier.
Adapters: you will not get USB 3.0 ports on modern MacBook, only USB C. These ports not only in the old MacBook Air.
