One of the SLT is a Mac fan-boy and was determined to get them for CDT, Media, Music and Art. Costs us way too much in broken hardware (yes mac do break), stress, time (down to stupid staff and students) and software. Tech hate them as we have to install a VPC so they can run their software, so why did they get them in the first place! Art only use photo shop so could have spent £700 per system on top of the range PCs, they cant get used to them and would have preferd PCs.

I use to do these calculations when working as an Architect in the IT Outsourcing industry.....
1:200 for Student devices and 1:125 for Staff devices....
Thin Clients get up to 1:800 (assuming a swap out model)....
But...there are also a lot of other factors to take into account when getting the actual fte ratios
I have not included any AV work in here as yet....
see picture attached.
