I get it from personal experience! I can think of one household where a Toshiba, an Acer and an Asus (all top-range models) have all needed repair
There is nothing 'top range' about those brands. They are typical rubbish pc laptops full of crapware that change their specs every other week. The reason why MacBooks work reliably is they only manufacture a very small select range in vast quantities. No surprises, no downloading dpc latency checker.
