Total cost of ownership: Mac versus PC in the enterprise

Debate over: Mac is less expensive than PC

Over the past 10 years, Mac has risen in popularity with consumers thanks to its built-in security and overall ease of use. This rise in consumer demand for Mac is not lost on enterprise as they are discovering the same benefits and choosing to deploy more Macs in their environments. This growing trend continues to be fuelled by a younger, more tech-savvy workforce who grew using Apple products.

When contemplating offering Macs to your workforce, the question of cost inevitably comes up. “Macs are great, but I can buy two PCs for the same price as one Mac,” is a common mentality within IT departments. However, when comparing the total cost of ownership associated with providing basic services, software, management and support, the outcome (surprising to some) favours Mac over PC. But how can this be since the upfront cost is more? Taking IBM VP Fletcher Previn’s 2016 Jamf Nation User Conference presentation on this very topic one step further, we examine the numbers and put the Mac versus PC in the enterprise myths to bed.
