What defines the replacement lifecycle of computers?
There are several contributing factors:
- Risk – from the original date of manufacture, all the major hardware vendors provide access to individual components (motherboards, memory modules, hard drives) to a maximum of 5 years.
After the 5 years there is no guarantee of the availability of those components.
- Cost – even prior to the 5 years from original manufacturer, there can be an associated cost of parts if outside the original warranty (typically either 1 or 3 years).
Typically, the greater the period from the date of manufacture, the greater the potential cost.
Once beyond the initial 5 years, scarcity can also drive up cost.
- Performance – it is generally accepted that computers slow as they get older.
The rule of thumb for Desktop computers is that after 3 years there will be some performance issues and this typically increases in Years 4-5.
With laptops, this is often reduced to years 3-4 when performance issues become noticeably worse.
Our recommendation is that all devices be replaced every 4 years under an Operating Lease – 4 years provides a middle ground where performance is becoming an issue but not a frustration.
From a financial perspective – the computers will have been typically depreciated to $0 book value after 3 years, so an additional year provides some extra value.
The only choice then is to find an acceptable Operating Lease Partner that had a commercially viable rate – HP Global Financial Services are that partner.
- Compatibility of Operating Software and applications - as the amount and capability of applications continues to increase, the demands on the hardware/software can increase which can drive earlier replacement.
