Macintosh Office Proposal - 8/15/85






The Disadvantages


  1. Initial Capital Expense - At retail costs the purchase of three work stations, which includes a Mac and a dot matrix printer, one 20Mb hard disk, one laser printer, Appletalk networking cables and software would probably run about $17,000.

  2. Resistance to Change - As with any change in procedures it is likely that there will be a few individuals who will resist the use of computers at the start.

  3. Increased Demand for More Workstations - As people discover the benefits of using the Mac it may prove difficult to gain access to the one Mac in each section. It may be necessary to purchase several more workstations for the department, at retail costs this represents an additional investment of approximately $2500 each for a Mac and printer.
