Mac Rentals

Apr 1, 2008
Apple has enjoyed a resurgence of late, thanks to the popularity of items like the iPod and iPhone. Mac rentals are also surging forward, based on the strength of the computer side of Apple's business. Small and medium businesses are moving in greater numbers to Apple computers. Computer rental services provide these businesses with cost-effective options for equipping their teams for special projects, training and testing.

Mac Rentals - Gaining Strength

Business reporters credit the "halo" effect of the iPod and iPhone for the renewed attention being paid to Apple computers like the older Powerbook and newer Macbook and iMac.

The numbers show the gains made by Apple. Although 88% of small businesses and 98% of medium businesses currently use Windows XP-based computers, Apple has seen market penetration increase. In medium businesses, the popularity of Apple's desktop and notebook computers more than doubled between 2006 and 2007. In the small business market, Apple saw interest in desktops grow by more than 50%, while witnessing slower growth of 3% in notebooks.

With this increasing curiosity about Macintosh computers, Mac rentals are also growing.

Mac Rentals for Business

There are many reasons why businesses choose Mac rentals. For starters, there is the "wow" factor that Apple is so good at generating.

Its partnership with Intel, which allows Apple computers to run multiple operating systems, has increased compatibility between Macs and PCs. Both Macs and PCs can connect to the same network, share applications and exchange data and files. As a result, businesses are checking out Macs more than ever before. Equipment rentals allow businesses to take a trial run of a Mac desktop or notebook in their own work environment.

Businesses that have shifted to Macs have found many other reasons to take advantage of Mac rentals:

* Evaluation. As mentioned earlier, few technology companies can match Apple's ability to generate buzz. Businesses anxious to try the latest MacBook or iMac can get the technology temporarily.

* Training. Macs have a reputation for being easy to use, but when companies make the switch from PCs to Macs, some training is necessary. Mac rentals allow companies to set up a complete training environment for their staff.

* Testing. Just like in the PC world, new software and hardware needs to be tested before being implemented across an organization. Mac rentals give businesses the technology they need to run thorough, real-life tests of new technology.

* New Projects. Many businesses rely on contract workers to help them with extra work. Mac rentals provide hardware on a temporary basis for these kinds of situations.

* Travel. Staff who travel only occasionally may have need for a notebook computer for a few days or weeks. With Mac rentals, you can acquire a new, WiFi enabled Macbook for short or long business trips.

In so many situations, Mac rentals are the answer for today's businesses, offering new technology at a price they can afford. If you are having difficulty making a choice between a PC or a Mac contact a technology expert for guidance.
