Continuing to use older computers can have an enormously negative impact on your business finances. Maintenance costs, security vulnerabilities, and productivity losses all add up to dangerously bad news for your bottom line.

An old PC could mean up to $17,000 a year in productivity costs.1 A recent study estimates that old computers make employees 29 percent less productive on those machines.

We know you're probably working with a tight budget and that you hit a new expense at every turn. But the performance and productivity enhancements you'll get from computers with the latest Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Optane™ memory make new PCs an investment that immensely improves your long-term profitability.2

There's no better time to upgrade if your firm is migrating to Windows* 10 Pro, as you can expect further savings when you pair new hardware with the new OS.

Stop asking if you can afford a PC upgrade and focus on the real question: How much longer can you let older PCs cost your business?

Small business owners are remarkably inventive and imaginative when it comes to doing more with less. But there are times when ingenuity can bring unexpected costs, when that nifty hack is really a hack against your own bottom line. Making do with outdated computers is an excellent illustration of how small business owners can pay a price for being too frugal.

Why Upgrade Now

Just ask A.V. Sindhar, who runs a consulting firm in Silicon Valley. His computer is the command center for his entire business—an essential tool for everything from creating slides for new business pitches to making invoices and bookkeeping. Sindhar discovered early on that keeping critical technology current was key to building a successful business.

“I wanted to keep my launch costs down, so I tried to get by with a four-year-old laptop,” recalled Sindhar. “That was a mistake.”

After a couple of weeks of suffering slow boot times in front of potential clients and precious hours squandered trying to get his machine to run properly, Sindhar invested in a new computer. “I realized I was actually wasting money trying to save money. ‘Time is money’ is a cliché, but it’s true—it's especially true in the early days of a business,” Sindhar said.

Sindhar might be shocked to discover just how costly an outdated PC can be. It's estimated that up to one week a year is wasted on frustrating tasks like restarting the machine, reloading software, and waiting for IT consultants to call you back. Measured in money, an old PC could cost up to $17,000 a year in productivity costs.1

There are other costs to keeping old computers in service. The digital age has also ushered in a fierce competition for talent. The best employees—the ones who can make a difference between success and failure for a small business—don't want to work on older computers. It's not only millennials who expect current technology to do their jobs; the talent a small business owner needs to win requires computers that are high performing, mobile, simple to use, and durable.

I wanted to keep my launch costs down, so I tried to get by with a four-year-old laptop. That was a mistake.”
