My computer is about 6 years old. Can I plan on using it for 3 more years?
We wouldn’t recommend doing that. Every computer has moving parts such as hard drive, fans in power supply and CPU cooling. The wear on these parts will cause a failure of these components within this time frame, such as hard drives which often go bad in less than 4 years. Keep in mind that these days technology changes so fast and new operating systems that are more secure and stable are constantly being released. If you are using a computer that is over 6 years old – you are using technology that is at least that old, if not older. Instead of waiting to get hacked, or waiting for a very expansive repair, you should take proactive approach. Replace the system while it is working, and save the costs of combining a repair plus replacement. There are many factors to consider when you change a computer, and with our experience of replacing thousands of systems for many of our clients, we can assist you and make this an easy process.
