A guide to the myriad of options available when choosing a PC or laptop
A PC is probably one of the most important assets for a small business. It enables you to manage customers, suppliers and staff and will save you a lot of time and effort if setup and operated correctly.
There are many different types of PC available, and this guide will assist in guiding you through the maze of choices you will be faced with and hopefully give you some idea of the PC that would suit your work. We’ll talk you through the following:
- PC costs
- Laptop costs
- Disk space, drives and extras
- Monitors and screens

Support and suppliers
In general, PC equipment is extremely reliable. If it is going to fail over, say, a five-year period it is most likely to fail when you first switch it on. Thereafter the risk of failure drops off dramatically over the first few weeks. A supplier’s warranty will therefore cover most failures.
The Finding Hardware Products and Suppliers Guide can help you when it comes to selecting a supplier.
