        A total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis conducted by Microsoft at AMD predicted that upgrading AMD’s 5,200 desktop and notebook PCs to Windows Vista™ from Windows XP and Windows 2000 will provide AMD with a net savings of up to $192 per PC per year, equivalent to a 6-percent reduction in the company’s current annual per PC TCO.

        The projected savings are expected to be the result of savings in IT labor, end-user labor, and reduced electrical consumption per PC per year.

        · IT labor is predicted to be reduced by 6 percent or $22 per PC
        · End-user labor is projected to be reduced by 6 percent or $121 per PC
        · Electricity consumption is estimated to be reduced by 40 percent or $49 per PC

        Based solely on these TCO benefits, the TCO study predicts a payback period of 7 months with an internal rate of return of 219 percent.
