Do you have slow computers in your office that take ages to start up and that slow to a crawl whenever there's more than 1 or 2 apps running?
If so, I bet you have first generation Windows 7 computers that have actually been doing a good job for five or six years but are now right at the end of their productive life.
Here's 5 good reasons to replace your old business computers before the end of this financial year:
#1 Windows 10 is Ready for Business
Windows 10 has been released for over 3 years and basically all applications nows work on Windows 10. Windows 10 is a natural progression from Win 7 so there's no cross-over learning bump before you begin to take advantage of the additional productivity, functionality and security features of Microsoft's latest operating system. Plus, most of your staff probably have a Windows 10 home computer at home already...
#2 Amazingly fast start-up and all-day-long performance
We now recommend SSDs (solid state drives) for all desktops because of the increased productivity you and your staff will experience. SSDs are about 10 times faster than a normal hard drive and you will notice that difference from the time you turn your computer on until the end of the day when you turn it off. SSD drives used to carry a hefty premium, but not anymore - and the small extra cost (about $50) is quickly recovered by getting through your work quicker, especially when you're running multiple applications or working with large files.
#3 No hardware warranty
For most of our clients, June is a hectic time - trying to close as many sales as possible whilst at the same time working on budgets and plans for the 2019 fin year. Using slow computers on old hardware that have no warranty coverage is a recipe for frustration, wasted time and data loss.
#4 Tax Advantages
The recent Budget reminded us all that there are still the same tax advantages as last year when purchasing new equipment. If your turnover is under $10M, I'm sure you're aware that the Budget extended the write-off threshold for all asset purchases up to $20K per item.
#5 Manufacturer Specials
Many of the leading manufacturers are currently running end of financial year marketing campaigns. For example, HP has a very attractive promotional bundle on offer while stocks last - purchase a low-profile HP 800 EliteDesk G3 desktop model and get a tilt, swivel, pivot and adjustable height HP monitor for an extra $130 (ex GST).
NOW is the time to replace your old computers
The HP 800 EliteDesk is a great priced high performance business computer - I personally recommend it as I have one myself!
