Two markets are differentiated in the computer technology environment – the consumer market and the business market. Equipment acquired as university assets, are bought from the business market for the following reasons:

The investment in business models pays off in terms of reliability, faster turnaround times, features, lifespan over the lifecycle of the product. The products are or could be used past the expiration dates. Replacing batches or squeezing the fiscal yearly budget of the department is not always possible. The reality in this environment is that most desktops are used far beyond the expiration date. The consumer products or older technology desktops or laptops are cheaper but the total cost of ownership is more expensive over the lifespan of these products. The built and quality, support and warrantee and the lifespan of the cycle of these products cannot be compared with the business models.
