Re: Still, at least you can now eat ...

The reason a company purchases MacBooks is because of residual value; if they lease or trade up often, the residual value can indeed lower costs for the upgrade.

An IT department buying longer term purchases either ThinkPads or Dell Latitudes, because unlike a MacBook they can actually be both serviced and upgraded. And serviced or upgraded in-house to boot. A faulty out of warranty MacBook can become a very expense thing, while a faulty ThinkPad gets you on eBay for an easily affordable replacement SKU.
