24 Nov We’re buying new computers for the office and I don’t know what to look for. What’s important in a computer for a business setting?
That largely depends on the business you’re in, but there are a few things you always want to keep an eye out for. Are you looking for desktops that will always stay in place or laptops that you can take home? Do you need specific software like accounting applications and industry-specific applications like metallurgy evaluators, stock-trackers, or any program that helps your company function? Do the computers you’re looking for meet or, preferably, exceed, the specifications listed for the programs you need? Don’t forget to include applications like firewalls, servers, and anti-virus programs. Do you need a network? How much storage space do you need? Can you make backups? These are all important questions you need answers to before buying computers for your office.
