An old computer is a ticking time bomb: Here’s how to dismantle it and protect your business.
2 months, 1 week
Like it or not, your laptops, routers, and desktops have an expiration date; and a sudden loss of essential tech can quickly grind your workday to a halt. Under the wrong circumstances, it can even be catastrophic. But luckily, by planning ahead and following these few simple rules, you can make surprise upgrades (and the costly downtime that comes with them) a thing of the past:
- Replace laptops after three years: By then, the components will begin to degrade, and advanced applications won't run as smoothly.
- Invest in new desktops after five years: While somewhat more resilient than laptops, desktops fall victim to the same quality and performance issues over time.
- Routers should be replaced every three years: This ensures your wireless signal won’t ever let you down when you need it most.
- Plan for subscription costs to increase: Unfortunately, subscription costs are always going up, up, up so it's best to not be blindsided by them.
