Interesting PC stats

Some interesting stats about new PCs.

“Of the 13.6 million desktop PCs sold in 2002, an estimated 1.9 million had serious problems within the first month of ownership, with some 544,000 of these totally inoperable when the buyer set up the machine. Consumer Reports estimates that some 150,000 desktop PCs sold in 2002 were lemons–meaning their owners had to replace three or more components during their first 16 months of life.” from consumer reports’ website
