Operating systems, RAM, screens, processors, storage, screens and everything else in between. Buying new laptops can be a daunting task especially when it’s for your workplace. While it must allow you or your employees to complete their tasks without any problems you don’t want to pay a small fortune either. At Superfast IT we deal with this issue on a regular basis. Take a look at our process on how we help clients find the perfect laptop for them and their business.
Finding out your budget
“We don’t have a budget, or we don’t know how much to spend” is a common problem we hear at Superfast IT. The truth is everybody has a budget and a rough idea of how much they can afford to shell out on new hardware. Laptops vary in price drastically ranging from around £300 with high-end laptops costing upwards of £2000. We know everybody can’t afford to spend that much on a laptop, but we also want to make sure you’re getting the best value for your needs which bring us to our next point.
Finding out your needs
We’re not going to sell you an all singing and dancing laptop if you don’t need it. We will ask you a series of questions to make sure the right laptop gets purchased for you. We’ll ask what the primary use of the laptop will be for and a few other questions such as how long you want it to last and its warranty. If the main use of the laptop is just for checking E-mails and surfing the web, we know you’ll need a lower spec laptop. If you’ll be using it for more intense tasks such as gaming or editing videos and images you will need a higher spec machine.
With over 15 years experience in IT support we know what works best. That’s why when somebody asks us about purchasing a laptop we give them our recommended standard spec. The spec is as follows:
- 8gb RAM
- i5 Processor
We will never try and upsell you, but we don’t want to undersell you either. Buying new laptops should only be something your business has to do every three to five years. They should get seen as investments and a critical part of your business infrastructure.
Once it’s ordered
So we’ve found the perfect laptop for you, now you’re probably expecting it to be weeks on end before you get it. At Superfast IT we’ll order with next day delivery and get to work setting the laptop up straight away. Once it comes into the office,
We’ll start the installation process making it has all the programs and software you’ll need installed. We can then bring it to your site do the final bit of setup, and it’s as simple as that.
We know it can be stressful buying new laptops and setting them up ready for work, so we’re taking that headache away. Does this problem sound familiar to you and your business?
