Mourning Apple's war against sockets? The 2018 Mac mini should be your first port of call

You could have a bit of fun with the company graphic designer, you know the only one in your company who was on a Mac and therefore every company-wide software purchase had to also be Mac compatible reducing your choice to a few and your remote device management is difficult...

Set up a PC with an SSD and a load of RAM and a decent CPU. Use the Adobe CC subscription to load on their favorite applications. Make sure the desktop had the links to these applications and then ask if he wants to try it out for comparison. Add two high-res monitors to replace the one that they are used to with the Mac. Then watch as they can't believe how fast it is and how it works pretty much exactly the same - no file issues, no font issues, no iCloud worries, especially when you explain it is much cheaper than the Mac. Watch how they slowly start using the Mac less and less and the 'trial' machine more and more.

Sure Windows might be a bit rubbish with some horrible awkward UI decisions, but hardly any users 'use' Windows, it's just a resting place for their icons, printer and file manager - same as every other platform.
