Apple Mac sales in the enterprise during Apple's last fiscal quarter grew a whopping 66 percent, significantly outpacing the rest of the PC market, which grew just 4.5 percent in the enterprise. The data from Apple's previous fiscal quarter was highlighted on Friday by analyst Charlie Wolf with Needham & Company. He said though he originally viewed success in the enterprise as a "one-quarter blip," it now appears to be a "durable platform" for Apple.

On the one hand, you could buy a $500 Dell, loaded up with MS Office, and give it a 2-year useful lifespan.

This comparison is, of course nonsense. E.g. our university has many 'ancient' HP desktop machines that have been running at least 5 years. The actually rarely break, and are usually replaced by faster machines. I am a Mac user and enthusiast, but I have seen far more Macs that required repair than HP business machines.
