Many of our customers ask: “When should I replace my PC?” At what age a modern computer would need replacing depends on how you look after it, and on the hardware itself.

A well maintained PC can have a long life.

For example, it depends on how well the machine is made—if it has got good air supply, that helps a lot. On some smaller machines you will see pretty poor air flow. They are so compact that the air flow is so bad, that it causes so much overheating that in some cases; a capacitor will blow meaning, you need to buy a new motherboard or even a new PC if your machine is out of warranty.

A well designed PC is made to last. One of our team has a 7-year-old Dell laptop, with 2 GB of RAM and a 120 GB hard drive; even now it’s still as fast as ever because he rebuilds it every so often. However if you are unsure of how to improve the performance of your PC, please call us and we will evaluate your PC, and advise you on whether or not you need a new one.
