The macbook air doesn't surprise me. Â It was one of the first laptops with passive cooling and ssd. No mechanical parts, Â less breakdowns.Â
That said, Â large numbers of windows laptops come with dedicated video chips, meaning mechanical fans for cooling, clogging and overheating.
Given the (high) price tag of apple products, Â purchasers are more likely to take care of the product with fancy padded accessories, and less likely to hand the laptop to the kids.Â
