When you need a new computer for the office, it is tempting to take advantage of some of the deals that are available on consumer PCs. Many have the same brand name as business PC but they are not quite the same thing, and it pays, in the long run, to use a dedicated business product – even if you only use a computer part of the time.
Business PC Features
When you buy a new computer, you need certain features and software to be built-in and ready to go. For a business, you need your network to be more secure, and you will need full versions of business software such as Microsoft Office. The operating system that comes pre-installed on a business computer will have many features the consumer options don’t, such as the ability to join corporate networks. Computers that are designed for home use will come with a very basic operating system such as Windows Starter Edition or Windows Home Edition, which may lead to you needing expert assistance to link them to a secure business network successfully.
Think about how often you’ll be using the computer for business. If the computer is predominantly for home use and only occasionally used for work, then a consumer PC with the appropriate work software and settings may be fine. If the computer is going to be used mostly for business use, then it should be a proper business-class computer. The build quality of PCs designed for heavy usage is much better than that of consumer machines.
It will probably not come as a surprise that consumer PCs are not as durable and reliable as dedicated business machines. Most consumer-class computers are only expected to last for about two years while being used for 2 or 3 hours a day. On the contrary, business-class computers are designed to last for longer while as well as being used for longer hours each day, by using higher quality components.
