TekStop in Prescott Discusses the Options

To get the most out of your investment, you certainly want to stretch your computer’s life out as long as possible. But no computer lasts forever. TekStop in Prescott weighs in on computer repair versus replacement. Here are a couple of things to consider:

  • Upgrades and repairs will often sustain your computer for a decent amount of time.
  • At a certain point, it becomes better to invest in a new computer instead of spending too much money on continuing maintenance.

So, when is it time to replace your computer?

At TekStop, we recommend replacing every 3-5 years. That is because we view a replacement during this time span as actually a form of preventative maintenance.

Over time, every computer slows down, and Windows updates, or a new version of macOS, and other updates cause a significant decline in your computer’s performance.

Before you decide on repair or replacement, get an expert diagnosis.

Your computer is created from multiple components, each one doing its own job. Any one of them (or several of them together) could cause slowdowns, shutdowns or other issues. To make sure you spend your money wisely, have a professional technician diagnose the source of the problem or problems.

TekStop services include on-site diagnostics.

Our technicians will repair or upgrade your computer if that is what is appropriate or explain why a new computer would be the best way to go. TekStop also provides state-of-the-art preventative services. Our OneStop Maintenance Plans and a wide array of software and hardware solutions will keep your computer running smoothly.
