A computer lab is a significant investment for schools, universities, and business campuses. Although a certain computer may seem like the perfect choice based on the specs given by a computer company, the only way to really know if a machine is the right fit for you is to test it out. Demoing various computers on-site gives your team (and treasurer) the peace of mind of knowing that you’ve selected the right computers for your new computer lab. Here are just a few ways that computer rentals can help you build the perfect computer lab for your school or business.
Purpose and use
The first thing that any IT team should consider when developing a computer lab is the use and purpose of the computers. Will the lab just be used for running basic Office programs for students or does it need to be able to support digital design or programming software? Understanding the purpose and use of your computers can go a long way in helping you may the right choice for your lab.
Knowing the basic use and purpose of the computers in your lab also allows our technology rental agents to advise you on the computer rentals that best suit your needs. We work with you to understand how your students and employees will use your computers, then deliver the right products for you and your team to demo on-site. We can even provide installation experts to help you set-up the computer rentals in your demo lab for testing. Read: We Bring the Computer Lab to You to learn more.
Are you building an entirely new computer lab or replacing an old one? Do you already have some existing accessories or hardware like printers and servers that you need to make sure will work with your new computers? Computer rentals let you make sure that your new computer lab will be ready to hit the ground running from day one with no compatibility issues.
If your in-house IT team can provide our tech rental agents with the specs and information about any existing hardware that you have on-site, we can make recommendations about the computer rentals that are most likely to work with your existing equipment. Once delivered and set-up, your IT team can test all of your equipment with each computer rental to ensure that you don’t have any hardware compatibility issues.
Speed and power
If your computer lab will be used to run anything other than basic Office functions, then it’s essential that you make sure that the computer you choose to buy has the speed and power your users need. Installing the programs and software that you need to run on our computer rentals allows you to make sure that you’re giving your users the tools they need to get their jobs or assignments done.
Our tech rental agents can even help eliminate some of the headache from this phase of your demo project. If you can provide us with a copy of the software or an imaged machine, we can pre-install the software or programs you need to demo on each machine prior to shipping them to you. This allows you to begin testing your computer rentals on-site faster and easier. Read: Don’t Be a Hack to learn more about the importance of selecting the right computers for your needs.
