I cant say for the laptops but I use there parts in my desktop and they are reliable. As for the chart I would guess it maybe hard to find since they are not a "mainstream" brand. Just curious which laptop are you looking at and how much is it. The specific laptop will allow people to better answer your question.
1- Asus / MSI (never had to repair any of them in the last 5 years)
2 -Dell / hp (most of the time HD fail but rest of machine is ok, hp mobo fail 2-3 years usage)
3- Acer, apple, sony (will die within 2-3 years normal usage: computer made not to last- don't buy used )
4 - Gateway, toshiba (dead mobo within 1 to 2 years of normal usage: I saw a bunch of toshiba fail within 1 week of usage)
Msi is, what I consider, a top tier manufacturer along with Asus and Gigabyte. They make great products and stand behind them. I have sold several MSI laptops over the last two years and not had a single failure with any of them. Several of those have been in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some on multiple/extended tours and have had no issues what so ever.
Gigabyte makes laptop now ?
I have to disagree that Gigabyte stands behind their product. I had the worst horror story i ever had with an hardware company (and trust me i bought a lot). Gigabyte ignored my multiple support tickets, i had to post in their public forum and accuse them of ignoring their client until they sent an "answer", they always refused to RMA my motherboard and sent stupid contradictory replies. I ended up throwing the motherboard in the garbage and i swear i will never buy a gigabyte product again. I also had another problem with a RMA for a client. Sent the motherboard for RMA and they sent the same board without fixing the problem. Gigabyte has the worst support i ever seen.

That's mostly just marketing BS. The MSI's I were referring to just happen to be something that several people in the US armed forces bought to take on deployment with them. They are just standard consumer level stuff.
What they refer to as "military-class" are it meets us military requirements in it's construction. Things like better capacitors, thicker/stronger PCB and testing for failure in a variety of conditions.
