Great Benefits to Computer Rentals

benefits to computer rentalsComputer rentals are really useful in a lot of different ways and can help you out in a lot of different scenarios. It is no secret that the economy in our world today has seen better times. The current situation we are in economically can really take its toll on people, especially small or medium-sized businesses that are reliant on having the most up-to-date pieces of equipment.

While having the most up-to-date equipment can do wonders for your business, it can also sink it due to costs and other factors. Continuously buying new equipment can drain your bank account faster than you may think. But thankfully, there is an alternative, a computer rental. Computer rentals can benefit you and your company in many different ways and may even save your business.

Predictable Expenses - Have you ever been looking online or in a store for a computer or other piece of equipment and found a really great price only to go in to purchase the equipment the next week and the price has gone up $200? That happens a lot, but not with a computer rental. With a computer rental you always have a solid price. Your payments will not increase month to month and the price of your rental won't go up either.

Minimal Upfront Expenses - Computer rentals have minimal costs that you are required to pay upfront which allows them to deliver the technology you need at a fraction of the price you would pay to purchase it. This allows you to be more flexible with your equipment and technology.

Flexibility - Do you know what kind of revenue your company will be producing in six months? If you answered yes, then ask yourself how reliable that figure is and if you are willing to bet a lot of your company's income on it? Computer rentals offer great flexibility and allow you to alter your computer rental contracts whenever you need to. This could keep you from making a potentially business-ending decision.

Technicians When and Where You Need Them - For some people, getting technical support can be an all out nightmare. With a computer rental, however, you can get a technician to come out and deliver your equipment, set it up and even test it to make sure it is all working properly. If your equipment breaks or malfunctions, you can have that same tech come back out and troubleshoot your problem and even fix it on the spot. Try getting Dell or HP to do that for you.

Disposable - Computers lose their value as they age. This is because they often become outdated with newer models that are faster, more powerful and able to handle more tasks more easily. Plus, most of the software and things you would need for your computer are designed to run best on the newest products, continually outdating older ones. Buying new computers every couple of years can get very expensive very quickly which is why a computer rental is a great way to stay on top of the new technology and still keep money in your wallet.

These are just a few of the many reasons a computer rental can better support your business over a purchase. So the next time your company needs a computer or another piece of technology, consider getting a computer rental instead.

2011 Tech: What You Should Expect

20112011 is poised to be a big year in the world of technology as companies are seriously finding out what they can do with their products and their technology. There was some good stuff released in 2010 that will show up in some more advanced tech in 2011 so be ready to see some familiarity among products.

Microsoft finally entered the motion control gaming market in late 2010 with their release of Kinect for the Xbox 360. Kinect allows the gamer's entire body to be the controller so nothing tangible is used to play the games. You control on-screen events and actions by waving your body about in certain motions. The company behind that technology is PrimeSense and they are going to supply that technology to Home Theater PC (HTPC) companies in 2011 in order to give movie and TV watchers the functionality of their remote control without their remote control. Look for gesture-controlled devices coming sometime in 2011.

Tablets were a huge thing in 2010 and they are only going to get bigger in 2011. Research in Motion (RIM), who made the BlackBerry, is poised to unveil their entry into the tablet market sometime in 2011. The device, known as the PlayBook, will battle against the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Dell Streak, the HP Slate 500, the iPad and a whole host of other tablets in 2011. There are a lot of other companies besides computer ones that are interested in jumping on the tablet bandwagon so be prepared to see a lot more tablets coming your way this year.

Wireless displays are something that aren't being talked about a whole lot, but it does appear that they are set to unleash in 2011. The WiGig Alliance said back in November that they will partner with VESA, the international non-profit company that has been known to support as well as set industry-wide interface standards on workstations, PCs and consumer electronics on a wireless DisplayPort. This device will support the same two-way speeds that a wired DisplayPort has and will carry audio as well as video for almost any type of display device from tablets to monitors. AMD, Broadcom, Dell and Micrososft have already hopped on board with the WiGig Alliance and a few big movie studios are showing interest as well.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to new tech in 2011. There are so many more great products and ideas on the way that I could write for days about. These are some of the main ones that a lot of people will be interested in but keep checking back here as we will be giving you up-to-date information on all the latest technology news.
