Our newest reader survey data for frequency of repair and serious problems with desktop computers is in—and again, Apple was among the most reliable brands. Computers tend to be among the most repair-prone products we test, but if you're shopping for a new desktop, picking a brand with a good repair history can improve your odds of getting a reliable model.

We asked Consumer Reports readers who bought 8,007 desktops from 2009 through the first half of 2012 about their experiences and determined the percentage of models from each brand that were repaired or had a serious problem. Other brands included HP, Dell, and Gateway. Find out how they fared at ConsumerReports.org.
