Is It Time for a New PC?

If you use technology for your job, you know how important it is to have fast, efficient, up-to-date machines to help you do your best work.

Below are some signs that take into consideration cost, performance, and upgrades. Be sure to subscribe to our list for updates on the latest IT products.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Computer

Your Computer is Slower Than It Used to Be

Just because your computer has slowed down, doesn’t mean it’s time to get a new one just yet. Call us to see if your computer can be repaired before replacing it. We’d be happy to take a look. Another option is to upgrade, but generally, if your computer is slow and old, it’s likely time to replace it. In that case, we can help you choose the best, most cost-effective machine for your work. Remember malware and spyware can cause your computer to slow down, and anti-virus is the best preventative method for this. We can do virus clean up and install and AV such as Trend Micro to keep your system safe and running efficiently.

You’re Having Issues Multi-Tasking

A computer that can’t multi-task presents a lot of problems. Most of us know that while working, we have several applications running at once. Computers are built to run a lot of programs simultaneously. When you start to have problems running multiple applications, the issue could be your motherboard, processor, or RAM. If the issue is with only one of these things, fixing it shouldn’t be too costly, but the real problem could be getting new parts to work with the old ones, which can lead to expensive repairs. If this is a familiar situation for you and your machine, we can help you find the perfect replacement.

Upgrades Cause More Problems Than They Solve

If you’ve had your computer for over three years, it’s probably time for an upgrade. Laptops are difficult to upgrade, but if you can upgrade your PC, you might be able to save some cash. However, sometimes an upgrade won’t solve your problems. With upgrades on older systems, you may run into compatibility problems. If you have hardware issues after an upgrade, it is time for a new machine.

Repairing Your Computer Costs More Than Replacing It

If you’re experiencing problems with your computer, you should take it to a specialist—we can help you identify and fix the problem. While computers can last a long time without having any problems, the older they get, the more likely they will develop issues. Big problems can happen fast on old machines. If repairing your computer is going to cost more than replacing it, we’ll tell you and help you find a top-notch replacement.
