    Apple computers just got a lot more interesting for businesses. So far, we've been using PCs almost exclusively at work but we're now seriously considering replacing at least some of them by Macs. All of our Windows boxes are cloned using Rembo. Is there anything like that for Macs as well?
    We'd need to be able to set up a single workstation, pull an image and push it onto the other workstation preferably over the net.

    If you're willing to walk around with a DVD, you could use CCC or MimMac for a few dollars per seat.

    To do it over the network, you'd be well advised to set up a machine with Mac OS X Server and do a Network Install. That's a bit more ($500 for 10 clients, $1000 unlimited) plus a Mac (any Mac, really) to use as a server.

    Thanks for the reply - the latter could work for us - we have a site license for both the server and the client OS X. I wasn't aware that network install is a standard feature in OS X server
