Want to keep using that old computer?
If you are looking at costs – you’d better weigh your options!
A recent study - Keeping Notebooks Past Their Prime: A Study of Failures and Costs – shows that keeping notebooks past their prime costs businesses far more that it saves.
• Many companies are extending the useful life of their notebook computers from the recommended 3 years to 5 years in an effort to save on replacement costs.
• Keeping notebooks an additional 2 years (into years 4 and 5) actually costs $960 per machine, which is equivalent to a typical replacement cost.
• Further, outdated equipment will cost the organization in end user lost productivity.
In short, seriously re-consider keeping that notebook or desktop once it is past 3-4 years, or it may cost you! But also keep in mind that there is cost and time involved for that new computer - for data transfer and setting it up the way you are used to. Whatever your decision – we can help out!
