Helping advise some IT decisions at our organization. It is a non-profit that has about 75 users in our location where we are rethinking our IT. 50 of these are mac users. We can either buy our systems outright, or lease for $30-50+ (depending on model) with a buyout option at the end (fair market value). I'm thinking that the buy option is cheaper in the long run. We can keep them 3 years (until Apple Care is about to expire) then sell them. Downside is we have to handle all the administrative work of managing them, selling them, etc. I can't really think of a reason to lease other than it is less of a headache. Anyone run the numbers on these scenarios for your organziation or have any educated opinions?
