Now that your business is doing well you may feel as if it is time to make some upgrades? Maybe you want to upgrade your office, get a company car or even get new computers. All are great and success should be rewarded, but should business owners immediately go to Apple products as soon as they reach a certain level of success.
It’s no mystery that personal computers can be purchased at much lower prices than Apple computers, so many business owners go with the cheaper option when starting their businesses. The PC does the job but to many people, Apple products seem to make a bigger statement. Every time you go to a coffee shop or stroll through an airport, most of the people inside have Apple computers, so you begin to feel like you have to get one as soon as you are able to.
You have accepted the fact that you will have to pay a little more for the shiny Apple computer, but the one thing that you forget to take into consideration is that you will have to go out and buy all new software, which fosters the question, “Is it worth it?”
The fact of the matter is that Apple actually markets their products as high end, which is why they only have a few options. Personal computers are made by a number of different companies and many of them make computers at an array of different price points. Some of them are a little cheaper, which is appeals to a certain market. However, there are high-end PCs with features that are compatible with Apple computers.
When choosing a new computer for your business, it should come down to personal preference and what works best for your company. If you like the look and feel of Apple computers better and you don’t mind buying the necessary software, Apple is the way to go. On the other hand, you may not want to learn a new operating system or buy new software, so it may be a good idea for you to just get a higher-end PC.
