Companies are buying their employees the best laptops available, not because they’re executive toys but because they can up productivity and retention, boost efficiency, and even save on per-user IT costs.
If you’re still buying your users the cheapest notebooks you can find, then you’ve fallen behind the times. In the last few years, there’s been a major shift in the way companies buy computers, especially laptops, for their employees. Where it was once common practice to find something rugged and fairly cheap, today the focus is on laptops that are fast, light, thin, and have maximum processing power and manageability. Gone are the days when companies bought something that resembled a brick for most employees, with only a few employees getting high-end devices.
