    Nothing is that bad. Nothing except some unknown brands or Packard Bell of the past i reckon.
    Packard Bell was the worst and why NEC bought the company, I'll never know. Around 1994, I was tutoring someone on how to use a computer and she had some overpriced Packard Bell machine. After we had finished, she happened to baby sit the neighbour's child one day and he pressed a magic key combination that erased the BIOS because the company hadn't bothered to pay for/install a final version. Her machine was instantly unusuable.

    I've had a few small problems with Apple machines but overall, computers have been reliable, including my 1981 Atari 800, which is likely still able to run. I have some of the equipment connected to a more powerful 128 KB machine to play games.
