There are a lot of clients who ask me what is worth purchasing for new machines and replacement machines in their business. Most businesses can expect a machine to fail prematurely due to one of the following situations:
1. Expired or No anti-virus can cause this machine to degrade into a worthless tool.
2. Per to Peer file sharing – line Bearshare and Limewire can cause this slowdown. Also, torrents can cause this slowdown.
3. Wireless networks that do not have a security passphrase or passcode, could allow neighbors to use your network for downloads on a peer to peer network or torrents.
4. Using an old machine that has too many newer programs on it may be the cause of the problem.
Menlotechnical Consulting will always be available for diagnosing which of these relate to your network or machine. Most times, older computers can be upgraded with very little cost compared to an entirely new machine. Remember: a new cheap machine is not always a better machine since companies like Sony, Acer, Toshiba, Lenovo and Dell can sell you a machine with parts that are not hardy enough to run things smoothly. They remove essential components to reduce the price, leaving the buyer unhappy with the performance.
