    This seems awesome waiting for the brand to come top of the line, you are using and finally Hurrrrrah.
    How do we believe that the data is real? Can you share the source?

    Apple is a great innovator, but it never surpasses 10% share of the market.

    How can a crap like HP go so high? Their company deserves failure, because they make the crappiest computers, only from the cheapest components, but they sell them at a much bigger price they deserve. Fuck you, HP. I want my 700 bucks back, you crooks !

    Samsung: *am i joke to you?

    The number 1 rule, get a computer manufactured by IBM or buy custom parts .



  8. Kashif Nawaz on October 12, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    My first laptop was from Gateway and my first was from Compaq.



  9. PrimiusLovin on October 12, 2019 at 3:13 pm

    I can recommend HP and Asus laptops from personal experience, both lasting me around 10 years without any problems before being substituted!
    Asus makes more expensive premium laptops, probably why it doesn’t sell as many.

    I see why Steve Jobs was constantly comparing to dell at first))))) coz its the most popular



  11. GD Blackthorn on October 12, 2019 at 3:16 pm

    Dell were a pain in the … to repair. I still have a few laptops that just cannot be repaired because the flaws are built in! New motherboard… same old problem! Toshiba laptops were junk, a beautiful screen, but junk! They didn’t last long! ASUS even had flawed solder holding its video cards in place. Lead free solder is garbage! It is brittle and cracks! The lead gives it a lower melting point and a much more flexible and durable connection! Cheap China capacitors were the death of many desktops! HP made some of the best test equipment in the business. If they had based their quality on that they would be invincible (almost). Many laptops used cheap plastic frames where the plastic standoffs holding the hinges would break free. I always recommend a metal frame because the plastic hinges put way too much stress on plastic.

    I would like to see the same comparison except with gaming labtops , that would be amazing !



  13. Swingin30 on October 12, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    LenOwO what’s this



  14. Enigma September on October 12, 2019 at 3:17 pm

    I bought a Dell in 2005 and a Lenovo in 2012. That’s wild.



  15. Arian Negi on October 12, 2019 at 3:18 pm

    1:07 when i bought my first computer back in 2008, it had 512 mb ram and Windows XP operating system, it was of HP and Compaq, I didn’t knew that it was ruling over the world that time! 😃 Man, really miss those good old days, full of excitement! My dad gifted it to me. 😭



  16. Viru Gupta on October 12, 2019 at 3:19 pm

    Who all noticed at 0:23 hp sudden shots it’s selling ✌️



  17. Davi Nunes Souza on October 12, 2019 at 3:21 pm

    Compaq: Hey guys! I’m at the top
    HP and Dell: Not anymore



  18. Mashi Q on October 12, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    You should’ve added in a "custom built" or non predbuilt segment then it’s interesting



  19. Jaoheah on October 12, 2019 at 3:22 pm

    Why is there a mouse on the thumbnail did you think that was a computer?



  20. on October 12, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    IBM 1980s had great build quality, what a disappointment to sell most of the production to w worse company in build quality. Best keyboard and mouses etc



  21. New • Aleppo on October 12, 2019 at 3:26 pm

    Dell is the best 💪



  22. Amazing Facts. on October 12, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Yeah lenovo has the bear back!!!



  23. Waleed Ahmed on October 12, 2019 at 3:28 pm

    Where from you get data??



  24. nintendo1980 on October 12, 2019 at 3:33 pm

    Asus rocks, last 2 PC motherboard builds were by them, good brand, but the higher price point will keep it lower. Apple is overpriced, but at least it has high end hardware, but like Asus, high priced stuff does not sell as well as cheap. Also never buy HP they make junk.



  25. Liam Stephens on October 12, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    lol rip R Λ Z Ξ R



  26. Sha Navas on October 12, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    Lenovo how…
    Mine damaged…. cheap build quality



  27. Abbosbek Abdurazzoqov on October 12, 2019 at 3:35 pm

  28. Purple Spark on October 12, 2019 at 3:36 pm

    Fujitsu User from 2014.



  29. Paul Davis on October 12, 2019 at 3:37 pm

    HP has always been my favorite computer brand.



  30. Golden YT on October 12, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Lenovo, I boughted and put it into the bin. It opens in 2 hours, cant work, too slow



  31. Justcakenl on October 12, 2019 at 3:38 pm

    Rip razer



  32. Jeffery Okwuoma on October 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    Woah, did NOT expect Lenovo to be dominating the market. My first computer was a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p back in 2013. Figured it was a niche. Funnily enough, despite its age, I’m currently watching this video on it, and it still runs fine! Long live Lenovo 😎



  33. panqueques condulcedeleche on October 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    Still use my HP laptop from 2012!!!



  34. FantasticMrFolf on October 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    Why does the music remind me of something that Coldplay would’ve done?



  35. Alessio Witte on October 12, 2019 at 3:41 pm

    Suddenly Xiaomi is going to appear in the next video



  36. SheetFiber4488 on October 12, 2019 at 3:43 pm

    I have hewlett packard ivy bridge computer.



  37. OFFICER DJR on October 12, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    I’m surprised apple only controls 6.14% of the market



  38. Purple Spark on October 12, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    Umm.. Everywhere you see, there’s either HP or Dell. I don’t believe Lenovo can be leading



  39. Grape on October 12, 2019 at 3:48 pm

    I like it how Dell made it in the lidt but MSI dident make it



  40. Efsane Gaming on October 12, 2019 at 3:49 pm

    Where is Msi



  41. jokamutta on October 12, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    Wow I would think Asus was higher in the list



  42. MaxX on October 12, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    I thought when I was younger the Conpaq logo had to do with music as the logo looked like a music note



  43. Nominis on October 12, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    Who the hell keeps buying a Lenovo?



  44. WolfFrame on October 12, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    Intel+Nvidia>AMD



  45. Supa Koopa Troopa 64 on October 12, 2019 at 4:00 pm

    Computers in elementary school: Gateway, NEC, Dell
    Computers in high school: *L E N O V O*



  46. guilherme braz on October 12, 2019 at 4:01 pm

    Msi



  47. Yoel Robaina on October 12, 2019 at 4:01 pm

    Guess Sony could never compete. I remember having a Sony laptop in the 2000s lasted me about 6 years.



  48. Khoa Do on October 12, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    Can’t believe ASUS ranked last and Lenovo ranked first… I’ve seen more ASUS users here in Vn than anything else.



  49. MOHAMMED GFX on October 12, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    whet where microsoft and MSI



  50. Thiva Garan on October 12, 2019 at 4:05 pm

    But where is Sony’s Vaio?
