Affordability and The Total Economic Impact of Mac in Enterprise

When considering the cost of providing a workforce with the best devices, it is important to look beyond the acquisition cost. Apple products retain significant value over their life cycle, and when software, support and operational costs are consistent, Mac might be more affordable than you think.

The key findings are:

  • Mac is easier and faster to deploy
  • Employee retention among Mac users is higher

The full results are now available in the Forrester publication The Total Economic Impact™ of Mac in Enterprise: M1 Update, which includes a detailed financial analysis showing that, over a three-year life cycle, there is an overall cost saving of $843* for Mac compared with a PC.
