To me, it looks like these ratings are outdated or not properly rated for 2013 because in my experience MacBook is the best laptop ever built and its on number 8 spot.. that’s bad, and after looking at above comments you might want to revise this list.. also checked few posts on other top tech blogs and in most of best rated laptops posts Apple Macbook is on top..
