So you’re reaching that point where your computer is reaching the end of it’s life and your seeking an upgrade. This question of which one to buy is a question we are asked by our clients often. Alot depends on what you will be doing. Most of our clients are small business owners and residential folks. We have seen the needs of these professionals and non professionals across the board.
Most of the time, people don’t really need an expensive all powerful PC that they are only going to be using about 30 percent of it’s power. But you do want to have the most reliable components so you can have a peace of mind knowing your most sacred data is safe. Style is also a consideration when choosing a computer. Some clients want a laptop. Others want a small form factor desktop PC. We have clients who have needed something even more reliable like an industrial PC. These are designed to be extremely reliable and are typically used when you need to make sure your business is running with as close to 100% uptime as possible. Server racks, redundant array hard drive options, and rock solid power supply options are within this type of class.
To choose your best platform, it is best to decide on what your needs are based upon first. Allow yourself a little room for future growth and stability. Software is always changing and the demands on hardware can becoming straining if you go too small. In the end, you want a computer that you can feel comfortable using that will allow you to continue working on your bottom line and less on your maintenance needs. Making the right choice will give you peace of mind in the long run.
