Apple earned a score of 83 - a 2.5 percent improvement over last year. Dell improved on its 2005 score by 5.4 percent to garner a 78.

A study released Tuesday by the University of Michigan shows that overall satisfaction increased by 4.1 percent on Michigan's American Customer Satisfaction Index to a rating of 77, the highest achieved by the industry since 1994. But customers still rate PCs lower than several other consumer product categories, including cars and appliances.

Michigan's American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) is "a uniform and independent measure of household consumption experience." according to the group.

The ACSI tracks trends in customer satisfaction and provides valuable benchmarking insights of the consumer economy for companies, industry trade associations, and government agencies.

The index is based on ratings in the following areas: Customer Expectations, Perceived Quality, Perceived Value, Customer Complaints and Customer Loyalty.

    Most Apple users are zealots and wouldn't say a bad word EVER so this doesn't surprise me in the least.

    • Most Apple users are zealots?

      Does that include the millions of iPod/iTunes supporters or are you simply spouting off uninformed fan-boy rubbish?

      For the record , APPLE users are far more happier with their machines , which is more than I can say for the others . Does Microsoft even make a computer ?
