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.

$500 Dell will serve 4-6 years with no issues. I've had done application development on 5 y/o Dell Optiplex and those machines are still going to be in use for at least 3 years. My desktop is 4 y/o and I am still doing heavy Java development on it. Average users don't even need half of what I have. And I have an energy efficient setup with an underclocked CPU. If you are a larger client with Dell, HP or Lenovo, you'll get a service contract that will b**chslap AppleCare. I go for Lenovo, for their global warranty and subtile design.


That is assuming they buy them where as most organisations I know tend to lease them and let EDS, HP or IBM Global Services take care of the details.

I imagine it is the same company I worked for in the last years.
