No one likes to call tech support and it?s safe to say that those who are willing to spend time to rank support services are not doing so to praise them. So with a grain of salt in hand?

A recent Consumer Reports survey revealed widespread dissatisfaction with the tech support services of major computer manufactures.

The 10,000 respondent survey measured tech support services according to ability to solve the problem, length of call, and knowledge of support staff.

With exception of Apple, which received over 80 points out of 100 in both laptops and PCs, most manufacturers struggled to garner scores above 60 points.
