There’s an ongoing buzz created by a new study published by Square Trade regarding netbooks and notebooks reliability. The study revealed that budget-friendly notebooks and netbooks from Acer, Lenovo and HP are bound to breakdown faster than those machines created by ASUS and other brands. In addition, notebooks/netbooks manufactured by Toshiba, Sony and Apple did pretty well than their rival companies.
