Don’t Let Old Equipment Slow You Down
The number one cause of down-time is holding onto computer equipment for too long. Generally speaking, your computer equipment should last you about three to four years. Some business owners try to stretch beyond this time frame because they think it is saving them money by holding out to upgrade. Unfortunately, you will likely end-up paying more because you can’t do your job when the machine breaks.
Not only that, but older equipment generally has greater security vulnerabilities. For example, if any of your computers have unsupported operating systems you will no longer receive vital security updates. Not to mention compatibility issues within newer technology.
