Macs in Chemistry

Insanely Great Science

Mac Usage at Universities

I often get into discussions with software vendors about the size of the Mac market, in particular the number of scientific users at universities. It is very difficult to get accurate numbers but an increasing number of places have published a breakdown. Whilst few universities keep as complete records as University of Virginia, where Mac usage has increased from a low of 4% to nearly 40%, I’ve tried to keep a track of the numbers and what seems clear is the number of Macs on campus is increasing. If anyone can provide further information I’d happily include it.
