Buying new office desk top computers, tips, checklist, and consumer reports

In almost every business office in the world you are going to find at least one desk top computer, most likely you will see more then one, but it depends on the size of the business. The great thing about buying desk top computers is that it is so easy to do. You can find numerous places to buy computers from retail stores, online stores, and auction sites. You can buy pre-programmed computers or you can build your own computer depending on your needs.

Here are some tips for buying new office desk top computers:

Tip one:
When it comes to buying a computer for your business you want to for the most widely displayed models, not the most prominently displayed ones. By choosing from a widely displayed model you are going to find a better price and it will still have everything that you need for your business. Your prominently displayed ones are usually for the people who want the newest and best equipment as soon as it comes out, the good news is that in a couple of months something even newer will come out which will decrease the price on the prominently displayed computer, making it a widely displayed computer instead.

Tip two:
When choosing a computer you need to study the specs sheets of each computer so that you can find out what the computers have to offer and make sure that the computer will work for your businesses needs. What you might find is that one computer offers a feature that you need, but includes about fifty things that you don't need. In cases like this it might pay to have your computer custom built so that you don't have a computer system filled with unnecessary features.

Tip three:
One thing that you should do before you purchase a computer or even begin to look at buying desk top computers for your business is to create a checklist of some sort. The checklist should include what you are going to use the computer for, what kinds of programs you are going to be running, what kind of security you are going to need on the computer, how big of a hard drive you are going to need, do you need to connect the computer to a server or a network, are you going to use the computer on the internet, and anything else that seems important. If you have an IT department in your business or even if you use an outside company for your computer needs it is a good idea to discuss with them what you are going to need for your new computer, they can tell you what will and won't work when it comes to specifications for your new computer systems.

Tip four:
Now that you know what you are going to need for your computer you are going to be faced with numerous brand choices that fit your needs. So the next question is how to pick the brand of computer, this is where consumer reports will come in handy. By doing research about the different brands of computers you can read what other consumers have liked or disliked about the computers that they have purchased, what specific problems they have had, how they rate the computer for business needs, etc. You can find consumer reports in magazines or you can find them online. Your best bet is to go to a consumer website that offers reports and reviews on a variety of products so that you will get an honest opinion. If you read consumer reports on the companies website you might find that they are all rave reviews and don't mention any types of problems.
