Right now is a GREAT time to buy new technology

Increase Productivity

     If your PC or laptop is more than 3 or 4 years old you are missing out on a lot of potential time savings.

     Multi-core processors are the norm now and they make boot-up faster, your applications open faster, and those multi-taskers that have 27 apps open at the same time will notice a perkier machine.

    Solid-State hard drives (SSD) are radically different than they’re older counterparts. With no moving parts, they can reduce boot-up and application startup times by up to 50%. They’re a bit more expensive right now but, you’ll make it up by getting more done.

     With the introduction of Windows 7, 64-bit processing has hit full-tilt. Without getting too ‘geeky’, applications utilize and share system resources better and performance gets a big boost. 64-bit systems can handle more RAM, as well, which can cut more time from your work.

Uncle Sam wants YOU – to upgrade!

     The IRS has given businesses several incentives for upgrading their business equipment – including their PCs, laptops and servers.

    Businesses can write off up to $125,000 of qualifying equipment purchases in 2012. This is commonly known as the Section 179 deduction. Under current law the maximum Section 179 deduction will decrease to $25,000 in 2013.

    Businesses that have little or no profit in 2012 can still deduct the cost of new business equipment through bonus depreciation.  Unlike the Section 179 deduction, bonus depreciation can create or add to a business loss. However, bonus depreciation only applies to qualifying property purchased and put in service on or before December 31, 2012.

     Obviously, every business’ situation is different and we highly recommend you check with your accountant to make sure you can utilize these deductions.

Quality will save you money

     Businesses rely heavily on their technology. Downtime, due to equipment failure costs a lot more than the replacement of the hardware. Cheap systems will fail sooner.

    PC Geeks only sells the highest quality equipment. Our PCs and servers carry a full three year, parts and labor warranty, included! We resell only Lenovo brand laptops because they are consistently recognized as the top in quality and reliability in the industry.
