A Which? Magazine survey has found "an impressive nine out of ten owners saying they would definitely recommend" Apple's portable computers.

The findings were part of Which?'s November 2001 survey of the UK computer market. The brand most owners would recommend for desktops was Dan, but Apple was just 4 per cent behind.

Which? revealed this "closed the gap from the previous year". The survey also found that most buyers found independent retailers furnished the best quality of service.
