Apple to revive the Macbook, as iPad falters and IBM launches biggest Mac rollout ever | ZDNet

Apple to revive the Macbook, as iPad falters and IBM launches biggest Mac rollout ever | ZDNet | CIO | Scoop.it
Apple is preparing to re-energize the Mac, and it has a surprising new ally in IBM. But Microsoft has a trick up its sleeve this week, too.

IBM employees now want their next computer to be a Mac. IBM is happy to accommodate, because the company has found that Macs cost the company less to maintain. Last year at the conference, IBM said Macs were saving the company $270 per user. This year, it upped that number to $273 to $543 (depending on the model) per user over four years. Previn said PCs generate twice as many support calls and cost 3X in total.

Pál Kerékfy's insight:

Nagyvállalati IT igazgatóként én is sokáig (túl sokáig) bevettem, hogy az Apple gépek nem valók nekünk. Akkor kezdett tisztulni a kép, amikor négy évvel ezelőtt vettem magamnak egy iPadet. Rájöttem, hogy az Apple gyárilag beletett sok olyan dolgot, amit a Microsoft esetében rengeteg munkával és pénzzel tudtunk utólag beletenni.
