    This might sound a bit cheap but some of you guys in the forums say how you are so happy that your boss is buying you a MacBook air or some apple product. I was just wondering what type of job you guys have lol. Is it a office job? How long have you worked there to get such a perk etc.

    What makes you think it's regarded as a "perk" instead of a wise business decision? Very slightly higher initial investment leads to...

    Much less maintenance = lower maintenance costs

    More productive workers = more work done at a lower cost.

    -----------------------------

    lower cost + greater output = good business decision
