Choosing The Best Computers for Businesses

Choosing The Perfect Computers for your Business by Bulletproof IT

Any successful team or business requires the proper tools to do their work. A carpenter without a hammer can probably get most of their work done, but not as quickly or as effectively as a carpenter with one. In terms of tech, choosing the best computers for businesses can boost productivity and allows team members to thrive in their respective positions instead of struggling with outdated devices.

Consider Your Bottom Line

Contrary to popular belief, your company doesn’t need to overspend on the latest and greatest technology in order to be productive. It is more important to set a realistic budget and assess what your business actually needs. An accounting company will have different requirements than a design firm. As such, it doesn’t make sense for the accounting company to shell out loads of cash on the latest Mac. Nor should the design company go for the cheapest computers just to save a few bucks. When it comes to the best computers for businesses, you get what you pay for, but be sure that you’re paying for features that are actually useful to your business.

Choose an Operating System

Once you have a general idea of how much you want to spend on desktop and laptop computers, it’s time to decide on an operating system. Mac and Windows run 96% of the computers in use today, so it’s very likely you’ll be choosing between them. Alternatively, Google Chrome OS boasts some great, cost-effective capabilities. If you’re an entrepreneur just starting up, take the time to explore the options that all three systems have to offer. If you’re an established company with a staff that is used to working with one or the other, it’s probably not worth it to switch it up. It costs a lot of time and money to change operating systems, so it’s usually best to opt for an upgrade instead of converting systems.

Review the Specs

Last but not least, you’ll want to take a look at the specs your desired machines have to offer. There are several components that will affect the usability of your tech. Here are the factors that our clients tend to find the most important:

  • Screen Size
  • Resolution
  • CPU Type
  • RAM
  • Storage
  • Battery Life

With a little bit of research, choosing productive business desktops and laptops doesn’t have to be rocket science. And finally, confirm that your devices have support and warranties. It is the very nature of the technology that it will phase itself out or problems may arise. Ensure that you have an IT team, outsourced like Bulletproof IT or in-house, to help keep those shiny, new devices running smoothly.
