Are you often frustrated by how much your system slows down when you open more than one application at a time? On average, a client has at least 6 applications open simultaneously although some may be running in the background and may not be noticeable. Many companies can benefit from a workstation hardware refresh including: larger screens, better mice and keyboards, faster processors, faster and larger hard drives. The benefits of which may significantly improve your office productivity as well as customer and employee satisfaction. Some reliable workstation hardware and peripherals hardware manufacturers and suppliers include: Dell, Lenovo, Samsung & LG Laptops, PC’s and screens or monitors, Logitech keyboards, mice and peripherals.
Once your computer runs out of memory to handle all the open applications, the computer uses hard disk space to run application in use. Hard drive performance is typically at least 1000% slower than RAM, causing your applications running on your hard drive crawl when they could be running much faster. Once more than 50% of the hard drive’s space is filled, the computer will begin to deliver notably lower performance.
Newer versions of Windows and newer software are more visually intensive, requiring improved video processors with more memory. Typically, older “on board” video cards do not deliver the performance your system would require for smooth multimedia applications such as dynamic web pages and video playback demand.
Another major component in good multimedia and application performance is an adequate processor. Many companies are still using processors that are 2 generations obsolete. It is not necessary to upgrade every time a new processor becomes available, but as software and operating systems change, it is usually best to be no more than three years behind the technology curve.
