IBM is saving about $270 for every Mac it uses, says Apple

Apple says IBM is really benefiting from Macs.

Apple recently measured cost savings produced by using Mac Computers.

During its quarterly earnings call on Tuesday, Apple CFO Luca Maestri pointed out the benefits of using Mac over Windows for IBM.

Due to the fast conversion of Windows PCs to Mac’s, IBM is in high profit by saving about $270 for every employee who made the switch.

Tim Cook noted that about 30,000 Macs are already in the selling, buying procedure. Furthermore, 1900 Macs are being added each week in the list.

The high numbers of savings are being generated due to the fact that the combination of reduced support and increased residual values of Macs is of utmost benefit.

These savings are the result of reduced support costs of Mac. Earlier this month, during the JAMF conference, IBM claimed that mere 5% of the users need help and support from the company, while when it is compared to Windows the rate went to 40 percent.

IBM also said that they have to pay more to buy Mac PCs, but it saves them a lot more than other computers when it comes to efficiency and tech support.

In July, nearly 50,000 MacBooks were aimed to be supplied to IBM by the end of this year. This means that the company should hit the figure of units between 150,000 and 200,000.

The deal between Apple and IBM was part of the partnership agreement announced last year that has IBM developing enterprise apps for iOS.
