How to Choose the Best Computers for Your Business
Purchasing computers for your business or organization can be difficult because there are so many types to choose from. Here a few tips for buying business computers:
- Buy the Best You Can Afford – A bargain computer may be a great buy but its lack of speed will cost you in time is money.
- Pick One Operating System to Use – Unless you have specific needs dictating one operating system over the other, use the same operating system for your entire company.
- Decide if You Need Portability – If your work will take you on the road, to a client meeting or if you’ll be working at home, a laptop is a great choice. When you’re at the office, you can plug in a larger monitor, if you wish.
- A Desktop Provides More Value – If you never leave the office, a desktop is best, as they are cheaper, tougher, more easily upgraded and more easily repaired.
Get the Best Processor You Can
If a computer’s processor is slow, your machine will be slow and the processor is the most difficult piece to upgrade. A good one will have multiple cores; two is the minimum and four is about as high as most users will ever need. Talk to us about what the ideal number of cores would be for your needs.
You and your employees will be using the computers every day. Delays caused by the computer will cost you money, so spending a bit more up front can save you time and money in the long run.
Specifications to Look For
- Screen size is the size of the screen in inches, measured diagonally. Most desktop computers have external monitors that are bought separately.
- Resolution measures the tiny dots of visual information, known as pixels, that fit on the screen, measured in length times width.
- The CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the brain of the computer and dictates how fast it works. Generally, a higher Hz means a faster computer.
- RAM (Random Access Memory) improves your computer’s performance when you’re carrying out a variety of tasks simultaneously, like browsing the internet while keeping other tabs open. Using the maximum number of RAM chips your computer will allow, will make everything go faster.
- The hard drive is the storage capacity of the computer. Hard drives are built in and, with the growing availability of cloud storage services, the amount of storage built into a computer is becoming less important.
