That's simply not true. I posted the research a page or so back, it has been found that Asus and Lenovo on average produce superior hardware to Apple. And when you look back at it, it is true. There have been countless design flaws with macbooks and imacs having everything from overheating problems due to faulty cooling designs to batches of bad hard drives (which is natural because apple does use the cheapest hard drives and memory that money can buy)
Worse is when they do have obvious design flaws, apple doesn't acknowledge them, and in fact even has a history of deleting posts on their forums when people complain about these problems.
Not just on the iphone either, they do it for all of their products.
