  1. Not sure where you got your information on Lenovo support being unsurpassed, my experience has been anything but that. Poor language skills, not reading historical notes, lack of technical skills, etc. This wasn’t one individual but over 5 people in the same company. The frustration with the above has been enough for me to boycott any of their products moving forward.

  2. HP is one of the worst brands, I can’t believe it ranks #4. Including the worst customer service/tech support I have ever encountered.
