Purchasing a computer for work can be a difficult task. There are so many different brands and types. Which one is best for you? How much should I spend? Need a laptop, a desktop or a hybrid? And what about an all-in-one computer or a touch screen? How does a company determine what it receives? There is no magic formula you can use to make sure your computer is perfect, but there are many things you need to remember when making a decision. Here are eight tips for buying computers for small businesses.
Don’t be cheap.
Time is money. You will spend more time waiting for a cheap computer than for a decent one. So the computer you found was a good purchase. Your lack of speed will cost you a lot more. Organize a cake and spend at least $500 on a decent computer.
Select and paste the operating system.
The total difference between Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac OS is small. Use the same operating system across the enterprise, unless you have specific requirements that dictate one operating system to another. In the long run, each operating system will fulfil its role.
Decide whether you need portability or not.
Do you need to work outside the office? Then you have your laptop. If you never leave the office, you have an office. Desktops are usually cheaper for similar devices (this is a general rule and is not written on stone). Desktops are more difficult, easier to repair and easier to upgrade. If you want to work at home, on the road, in meetings with customers, etc., then you need to do so. When you’re at your desk, simply plug in a good monitor and a large keyboard. You can save money by bypassing the docking station. Most laptops have all the connections you need.
Get the best possible processor.
The processor is the heart of your computer. If it is free, the machine is free. This is also the most difficult problem to update. At any time, you can add more RAM or later get a larger hard drive.
Speed is not the only CPU speed to be taken into account.
A good processor has several cores. You need at least two, and four are more or less as high as most users. Users who want to render 3D models, photorealistic images, animations, models or analyses need at least eight cores. Ask your software manufacturer about the ideal number of cores.
Use as many RAM chips as possible.
Your computer’s motherboard has RAM slots in multiples of two. You need them all, no matter how many. In the case of four outputs, they must be placed on four RAM circuits. It has four RAM access points. The easier access, the faster. Imagine: If all pipes are the same size, do you get more water from two or four pipes? RAM works in the same way.
Different types of graphics cards exist for each model.
The game graphics card is ideal for games. Not suitable for use in CAD systems. You may be doing your job well (or playing games), but don’t assume that if it works well in the game, it will work well for you. Games are designed to play on the screen quickly and frequently. If you make a mistake, it’s not much, because the screen changes anyway in a fraction of a millisecond. The display remains unchanged for some time while watching a video or a 3D model. This must be true. Find the right graphics card for your needs.
Purchase of equipment with ISV certification.
Autodesk and many other software vendors conduct and certify their own hardware tests. This certification is called ISV (Independent Software Seller Certification). Companies that test computer hardware to make sure it is working properly with your product. If they say it is good to use, it is good to use.
Do not buy a model from the previous year.
Buying last year’s model can save you money in no time at all, but I recommend you a tip. You will need to purchase the latest motherboard, CPU, and so on. The computer is designed to
