A business PC is a quintessential tool for every business owner, freelancer and entrepreneur. When it comes to managing a business, it’s imperative to have the right technology to simplify everyday workflows, including working with IT tools, using word processing suites, customer relationship management software and a plethora of other software and applications to save time and money.
Contrary to their names, business PCs aren’t just for businesses. Some are also perfect for gamers and video editors as they are easily upgradable with add-on RAM modules, graphics cards and other components to elevate gameplay, which is otherwise difficult in a laptop.
In this piece, we’ll take a look at the most important specifications to consider when buying a business PC and review a selection of the best business PCs from HP.
Modern business PCs are feats of engineering indeed. They amalgamate so much hardware and software that they easily put yesteryear’s devices to dust. If you browse through the available business PCs in the market, you’ll see a bewildering diversity. We’ve compiled a list of the most crucial specs you should pay attention to when selecting a model for your needs.
This is perhaps the single most important component of a PC. It’s called the central processing unit for good reason; it’s the brain of your computer. When selecting a CPU, consider the generation or architecture of the chip. Intel® and AMD each have their own names for their CPU families, and newer architectures are faster. You should also take a look at the clock speed and the number of cores and threads in the chip, which are a measure of CPU performance (higher is better).
While most CPUs have integrated graphics which will suffice for common graphics-oriented tasks like streaming videos, you can invest in a dedicated graphics processing unit (GPU) if you have high-performance computing requirements. Graphics cards are ideal for data analytics, computer-aided design (CAD), video editing and graphics design.
Random access memory (RAM) is a kind of computer memory that is used to temporarily store data for fast access when you use apps. Measured in GB, the greater the RAM, the faster the system performance. You can easily multitask between multiple browser windows and other open software.
If you’re buying an all-in-one desktop PC, it’ll have an integrated monitor. The resolution of the display is important. A full high definition (FHD) display is great for crisp, rich visuals that reveal tiny details like spreadsheet cells clearly.
It’s important for a business PC to have integrated hardware-level security for enterprise use amid the growing cyber threats. Technologies like trusted platform module (TPM) are great for securing the integrity of the system and that of your sensitive data and files. Business PCs also increasingly offer endpoint protection software that stands guard against malware and cyber threats.
Depending on your space requirements, choose a storage drive that can accommodate all your documents, presentations and video files. Modern business desktops have solid-state drive (SSD) memories, which are faster and more robust than conventional mechanical drives.
Ensure that the PC you choose features an adequate number of input and output ports to wire up all your accessories and peripherals like keyboard, mouse and printers. This is even more important for tower desktops and workstations without integrated monitors and input devices.
One of the most important aspects to consider when investing in a business PC is to decide between a tower desktop or an all-in-one PC. Tower and workstation desktop systems are essentially the CPU, RAM and other essentials packaged in a single unit, which require you to add an external monitor, keyboard and mouse at the very least to make it operational. All-in-one business PCs, on the other hand, have the monitor and processor integrated into one compact unit, so it’s fully functional out of the box.
When buying a computing device, it’s easy to overlook its ecological footprint. PCs, like all electronic components, are built from a diverse array of substances. Prefer business PCs that are EPEAT®-registered and made from sustainable materials. It’s also recommended to carefully evaluate all specifications of a system before buying to ensure you invest in a reasonably future-proof and capable machine that will last you a long time.
