Law firm chooses Macs because of lower support costs

updated 12:25 am EST, Tue January 20, 2004

Macs offer better ROI

The law firm Brookfields has undertaken a as an internal IT audit over-rules a carefully considered move to PCs, but decided on Macs because of the support costs involved, according to The New Zealand Herald: "Our IT staff numbers would need to double if we were to run the equivalent amount of PCs. "It is very easy to maintain a Mac network, we have just four staff who manage the website, intranet, staff training and support for 145 Macs."

    Yeah. to some people it would be. If not, the world would be 90% mac and 10% PC.

    Me too

    One of my clients is a law firm, though they are a little smaller-- maybe 30 or so people. They run on Macs as well, we upgraded them to eMacs and iBooks running OS X last January.

    Yesterday was my first visit to them since October or November-- I don't remember the last time I was there, it was so long ago. So definitely believe the hype about Macs having lower support costs.

    Why four?

    I'll bet after the initial setup and configuration they could get buy with two people. Or they could do what I thought all IT depts should do - use Macs and when they don't need everyone, put their IT staff to work developing custom software to make the employees' work easier.

    Home page?

    I Apple doesn't plaster this all over their home page, there's something wrong with their marketing department.

    Oh wait, that's right, they don't have a marketing department (judging on how may Apple ads I see on TV)...

    Re: home page

    Of course Apple will post it. And it will make millions of firms switch over to the Mac, too, when they found out what happened to this law firm. Wow, this one incident will change the world!

    Oh, and I don't know what lame-a** TV stations you're watching, but I'm getting tired of seeing all those freakin' Apple commercials on TV (hey, at least with the holidays over they aren't as prevalent).
