Desktops are the workhorse of every business. At Cavalier Technical Services (CTS), we are experts in assessing the needs of our customers and providing technical and professional opinions on the desktop units that will advance productivity in a business.
As a business owner seeking to invest in desktops for your company, there are several things you will need to know before making a purchase:
While home computers are designed for 2 to 3 hours of daily use, business computers are designed to run all-day long and are generally under more pressure to perform.
Business computers have built-in tools to diagnose errors and some units will come equipped with tools that will protect your data, such as hard drives with pre-failure warning systems.
Using a home computer in a business environment can cause greater downtime and require more frequent repairs. This is analogous to using a home stove in a restaurant – it can be used, but ultimately i won’t keep up with your business.
Consistency of manufacturing is important for desktop purchasing for a business. In a business environment, it is essential to have computers that are similar to each other. This will lower the cost of ownership in both setup and support.
The operating system for a business computer must be the professional edition. Home editions are generally not suitable for the business working environment.
At CTS, we have a number of desktop options to select from:
Traditional desktops are referred to as the traditional computer. They allow for expansion and easy access to the DVD and USB Ports.
Small and ultra-small factor desktops
This is a reduced size desktop. It is characterized by a very limited expansion and uses significantly less power than its traditional counterpart.
A tower desktop is a full expansion computer. Its larger in size case allows for the simultaneous connection of multiple devices. However, due to its size, it is usually placed on the floor.
This is a computer with a built-in LCD monitor. It carries a smaller footprint, both physically and energy-wise.
Depending on the nature of your business, you may need to invest in workstations as oppose to a desktop. To be considered a workstation, a computer should have a server processor with the capacity to hold two or more CPUs. Most workstations require a 64-bit operating system to utilize the full processing power of the CPUs. Workstations are best suited for the following applications:
Financial and mathematical programs – spreadsheets, statistical analysis, trading.
Graphic programs – video editing, 3D modeling, CADD.
Scientific programs – research, analysis, exploration. The technological productivity for your businessdepends on your acquisition of the right desktop. Talkwith one of our technical sales representative today and get your business equipped with an efficient set of desktops.
