From a business perspective I don't see many hidden costs. I'm sure
'software' jumps to mind but if you're buying a new PC wouldn't you
also be either a) be updating the OS and apps to the current level or
b) be purchasing new licenses for the new PC of existing apps you have
on other PCs? With a new Mac purchase it's pretty much the same deal.
My personal list of Must Purchase software for my Mac:
- MS Office
- Adobe Photoshop Elements
Everything else is free or comes with the purchase:
- Firebird or Mozilla
- Various IM clients
- iLife applicatons (music, video, photos, dvds, etc)
- DVD and CDR burning
- NetNewsWire Lite (RSS reader)
