Gartner Says Effective Management Can Cut Total Cost of Ownership for Desktop PCs by 42 Per cent

Source: Gartner, Inc.

For a large company, the cost of purchasing a desktop PC may be only $1,200, but, kept for four years, the total cost of ownership (TCO) could be as much as $5,867 per year, according to Gartner, Inc. However, if the company’s PCs are locked down and well managed, the cost per PC per year can be 42 per cent lower at $3,413.

Similarly, a notebook computer may cost $1,500 to buy but have a TCO of just over $9,900 per year over three years.
