Analysis of Total Cost Ownership (TCO) models from Intel show that the lowest costs comes when PCs are refreshed on a three-year cycle, with savings in the form of energy efficiency, security, productivity, and manageability.
For example, making the transition to Microsoft Windows 7 Professional lets you take advantage of advances in security, networking, remote access and mobility. The new system has fewer interruptions and prompts, and has a faster recovery from problems. Even better, this powerful new operating system lowers support costs – by as much as 55% according to an IDC study. Older operating systems simply cannot compete.
