why do businesses buy one line of desktops/laptops
I wanted to check my thinking with the IT pros on this forum. I know that businesses like to buy computers that are from the same manufacturer, even if they aren't all the same model. Is the only reason so that you only need to have one vendor relationship?
the reason I'm asking is my small office needs a new computer and we've been a lenovo customer for a long time but we have a few new staff coming on board and they won't be power users. I am looking at HP and Dell and wanted to get a budget computer from one of their business line. Is there any issue with starting to mix the brand of computers in an office?
