Most college students and university students would choose to use a Mac, but the price is a significant barrier, according to one study commissioned by Apple-oriented device management company Jamf.
71% of surveyed students said they prefer a Mac, although 60% use a Windows PC, according to research. outfit Vanson Bourne. Of the people on a PC, 51% said they would switch if the cost was not a problem.
The data was collected in 2019 from 2 244 people in five countries.
However, it suggests that many Mac and Windows users are firmly rooted. Only 43% of PC users said that Macs provide the best value, and this figure rises to 80% among Mac users.
Mac users usually see the platform as "more intuitive," "long-lasting", "safer," and better for productivity, Jamf adds.
Although Apple regularly runs educational discounts and "Back to School" campaigns, Macs are still more expensive than similar PCs. A mini Mac mini is $ 799 before any required external devices like a keyboard, mouse, or monitor. MacBook Air, once a budget manager, is now at least $ 1,199.
