The bottom line is ROI The IDC report said business could see a return on their investments in Windows 7 in as little as seven months. They found that both end-users and IT managers reported faster reboots, shorter start-up times and fewer software failures with Windows 7

Using an ROI analysis and a series of surveys, researchers found each user saved an average of 43 hours of time annually for a return of 1,400 per PC per year.

Hardware is part of the equation An additional study with market research firm Techaisle, funded by Microsoft and Intel, found older PCs cost small businesses in several ways, including lower productivity and higher maintenance costs.

The Techaisle study found businesses purchasing new PCs get better security, less downtime, lower computer support & maintenance , and easier upgrades to new software applications.
