MSPM 6150: Planning And Administering Project Contracts after years for a credit towards a new MAC. PC’s does not have this program which means the user has to pay the full price for a new computer after a couple of years. Even though the common user does not apply TCO, we can see that buying the cheaper PC might not be best option when considering the cost of the life of the PC. Just as TCO has benefits there are also consequences of utilizing TCO. One of the disadvantagesof TCO is that it only looks at the associated costs of an item and does not focus on the overall benefit. For example, using TCO would lead the average consumer to buy a MAC, however TCO does not consider that MACs are harder to use than the regular PC. Therefore, an operator could become frustrated with operating a MAC and stop using it. Additionally, TCO is time consuming and requires a lot of data collection. The average consumer will not want to take the time it requires to collect all the date required to perform a TCO analysis.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
