My small company is setting up an office and taking on some staff so we can expand our operations. Currently everyone involved works from Windows machines and, quite honestly, we have seldom few problems. However, my ideal office is not one full of mismatched, hot, noisy PC's with the plethera of cables that come with them. No, this simply is not the C21st office. The rooms are quite small and with no air conditioning I just can't see it being a nice place to be. So, despite my personal distaste for all-in-one's, I'm pushing for iMac's, six of them, 20" Intel Core Duo's. I have a Mac mini myself, it's my playtoy and I love it, but I've never used Mac's in a business environment. Despite the challenges I think having a fleet of matching machines, each needing just one power cable, with integrated sound, video, Wi-Fi etc would make for a fantastic and uncluttered working space - maximising the room we have and keeping noise and heat to a minimum. Does anyone who has had or witnessed a similar experience have any advice or know of any possible pitfalls I'm going to be up against? I've budgeted for copies of Parallels and XP for each machine as I don't doubt that there will be the odd Windows applications that our staff will need. I'm not going Boot Camp though - I absolutely refuse to pay Apple prices and not have everyone enjoy OS X and its various pieces of software even if it is a bit of a learning curve... I'd imagine the majority of people will have never used OS X before and using things like SSH at the terminal could be somewhat daunting. Talking of SSH, does anyone know any good SSH GUI's that remember passwords? I'm also slightly confused about horsepower. I know Intel's new Core chips are fantastic - I have the Core Duo in my Mac mini - but lets face it, Yonah is a portable chip and these will most certainly be desktop machines running Office and multiple other applications. They'll each have 2GB of RAM, but does the 2GHz processor have enough beef? Finally, Apple's UK online business store offers no discounts whatsoever. Does anyone know if Apple is prepared to offer discounts for business? Surely 6 iMac's should at least attract discounted AppleCare or something. Any tips or advice on this front would be greatly appreciated, I think I'll cry if we end up plumping for Dell and Windows again and not taking this fantastic opportunity to think different. Thanks in advance for your thoughts! miniConvert Who doesn't want running an office of Mac's to blow up in his face!
