Macs in the Enterprise — 3 Comments

  1. If Macs included iPads, then I would have voted for one of the top options, but I don’t think you meant for Macs to include iPads. Strangely (or maybe not), the PHB’s have been more interested in iPads than Macs.

  2. We’re in the same boat, PTCruiserGT. No macs foreseen (although a quote for macbooks surprised the boss into admitting he ‘might consider them with windows installed later), but he (an inveterate Microphile) was willing to consider iPad use for some of our users if they pass security testing this spring.

    Primary reason PHB’s consider iPads is they are easy, secondary reason is they’re cool. The final reason is, compared to a decent laptop they’re cheap, if you can work with web content and remote control. And most people can…

  3. I should mention that one particular OS X “feature” prompted a migration off our remaining Macs, to Windows PC’s, about a year and a half ago. The old Samba libraries in OS X 10.5 don’t work with Windows DFS cluster shares, which (to be officially supported) required upgrade to 10.6… but we still had PowerPC Macs, so that meant all new Macs! PHB’s: no way!
