Even the most top of the line devices will one day become outdated. We know that no one likes the idea of parting with a tried and true companion, but there will unfortunately come a day when it’s time to bid farewell to your office computer. Here are some signs that you and your PC may be ready to go your separate ways:
You need how much RAM?
Keeping your computer up to date is imperative in combatting issues and bugs. Not to mention, there are some really cool new features that are released with operating system updates (have you guys tried Paint 3D?!). Unfortunately, aging PCs often have trouble meeting the minimum requirements to install the latest OS. On top of that, programs and apps that you may frequently use like Adobe Photoshop or even Microsoft Edge, have minimum specs or OS requirements that older computers just can’t meet.
It’s a red flag if you can run to the office kitchen, toast a bagel, and make a cup of coffee before your computer boots up.
Can I have a little room, here?
If you’re using an older computer and find that your hard drive is running out of space, you’re using up all your RAM when you only have Word and Outlook running, and that your CPU usage is running high – it might be time to say goodbye.
When Dave from Accounting stops by your desk to ask a question and you can’t hear a word out of his mouth because of the horrendous noises your PC is making, you may want to consider investing in some new hardware.
Do you have this in stock?
If your laptop’s power supply bit the dust and you’ve spent hours scouring the web to find a replacement to no avail, you probably need to make an upgrade.
