Are Workstations Worth the Investment?
As a business owner, you do want to ensure that you provide your employees the best computing machines. However, budget is also a major consideration, and there is no doubt that workstations are a pretty pricey investment. So, it might seem like a good option to go for consumer grade desktops that are friendlier for your pocket. After all, they both seem similar, at least on the outside.
This approach might work if you only deal with light tasks like creating presentations, working on spreadsheets, sending emails, and so on. However, if your business entails computing-intensive tasks like 4K and 8K video editing, CAD operations and BIM modelling, you will definitely be in trouble.
A consumer grade PC is not designed to handle such high-end operations, and you will find yourself in the need to replace them in a short amount of time. This will utlimately cost you more in the long run.
On the other hand, a business grade workstation will initially cost you more, but with its powerful performance, ability to handle heavy workloads and durability, you do not need to worry about replacing them for a long time. Plus, many workstations
can be easily scaled to meet your future requirements.
Consumer grade PCs also come with a pre-installed operating system that is more suitable for home or minor office use. They are also loaded with unnecessary software bundles that slow down the system even further. So, even if you save a few bucks, you will need to expend extra time and money on upgrading the operating system and ridding the unnecessary software.
Business workstations not only come with the latest professional version of the operating system, but are also free of cumbersome software so that you can focus on your work right away.
Another reason workstations make for a sound investment is the longer warranty that comes with it. Even if they break down, they can be easily repaired in a short amount of time.
So, whenever you need to purchase a system for your business, make the right choice by balancing budget with your business goals and performance requirements. The HP Z series workstations are designed for businesses who demand speed, performance and durability. For more information on how they can help enhance your business productivity, contact us.
