7 signs that you need a new computer

You may need a new computer

We understand that IT equipment can be expensive for any size business. It’s tempting to hold back and put it off until it’s really needed.

The problem is, this can cost your business in the long run, such as:

  • Reduced Productivity
  • Employee Downtime
  • Extra costs for next day delivery

The list can go on, but did you know that if a device is more than 3 years old, it’s most likely cheaper to replace it with a new one, then try and have your IT team repair it.

  • A 5-year-old PC could cost twice as much to run as a new one.
  • A 4-year-old PC suffers 55% more security incidents than in its first 3 years.

Security incidents are on the rise, especially as people work from home, and some businesses don’t have the proper protection. Most companies that don’t have an IT department, even it’s outsourced, could be under attack. Look at our 4 Signs you’re under attack article and if you have any of these signs, get in touch today!

It’s all about getting the balance correct between laptops and devices that can be repaired and will happily last another couple of years – versus slow, unproductive equipment that really does need to be replaced.

Take a look at our brand-new guide now, and you’ll learn just 7 of the signs that will tell you whether or not you need new computers.
