A study by respected technology research company Gartner has found that Macs are up to 36 percent cheaper to own and run than competing Windows PCs, Apple Australia has announced.

In examining direct costs, Gartner found that Macs required less technical support and the hardware and software costs were lower. Gartner found that this translated into direct savings of 25 percent over similar sized organisations using personal computers. University of Melbourne IT staff were able to manage more Macintosh systems per person, servicing 30 Apple computers for every 23.2 Windows computers.”
