How to Select the Right Computer for Your Business

17th April, 2020

Do you find yourself replacing your business computers more frequently than you would like? A business computer is an expensive and long-term investment, and you need to be very careful before making a choice.

You might have selected the computer that was featuring in every “best PC” list, but it won’t work out for you if you haven’t mapped the choice to your business needs.

Let us have a look at the factors you should consider before selecting the right computer for your business -

Laptop or Desktop?

Before we dive further, you need to decide whether your business needs calls for a laptop or desktop. If you and your employees need to travel around, a laptop will obviously be the prudent choice.

However, if portability is not an issue, desktop seems to be right choice. Still, desktops can be bulky devices that take up a lot of space. Why not go for All-in-One PC (AiO PC), an option that combines the functions of a desktop with the portability of a laptop? These streamlined PCs are easier to move around than desktops and take up a much lesser space.

The HP ProOne 400 Non-Touch All-in-One PC features a stylish design that is suitable for all office environments. It comes with an optional touch feature that facilitates easier manageability. Additionally, the AiO also provides and HD webcam, along with HP Noise Cancellation software so that you can have fruitful online meetings.

What do You Want to Use it For?

If you are going to perform applications that need less power like sending emails, creating presentations and working in excel sheets, you do not have to go after a high-powered machine that will cost you a pretty penny.

On the other hand, if your business calls for resource-intensive tasks like 3D CAD and rendering, you need to invest in a robust machine that can handle such applications. These tasks will call for a more powerful CPU.

Other important considerations to keep in mind are -

  • RAM - For handling many applications simultaneously
  • Storage - For saving large files
  • Display and Graphics card - For graphic designing and computing
