“How crappy are Windows PCs these days? The most reliable, best performing, highly rated laptop for running Windows on is a frickin’ Mac: specifically, a mid-2012 MacBook Pro 13.
As ZDNet’s Ed Bott points out, the laptops that were determined to be most reliable were the ones that ran clean installs of Windows, instead of bloatware-infected OEM installs. And surprise, every Mac running Boot Camp must use a clean install of Windows, making it the king.”

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) have long been the culprit behind unreliable Windows installations. While customers may or may not make use of trial software appearing on new, out-of-the-box machine desktops, OEMs make money just installing it.

And that’s just the problems stemming from software.
