Do you think IT should provision more Windows 10 computers?

Looks like there are over 1.3 billion active Windows 10 devices right now. I’ve always liked Macs, but they come at a cost—so would you consider *not* giving employees the option of Windows vs. Mac?

I would not purposefully deploy Windows 10 machines if there wasn’t a business use case for them.

Purchased Mac laptops (not leased) do not come with Accidental Damage Protection (ADP).  If you are not in the business of supporting break and fix, this could be a reason why you would not offer an option as your company would be:

  • absorbing the repair cost,
  • going to a third party to get that type coverage,
  • downloading repair cost to the employee.
