On the face of it, computer repairs are a balancing act between the cost of a repair and the cost of a replacement computer. However, in our experience there is often an emotional attachment to a trusted friend that may have served you for years, and more than that, the consideration of the impact of a change to a new computer.
A new system will probably have a brand spanking new operating system. It will most likely be faster than your old system. And it will have a new look and feel that you to get used to. And your desktop icons will all be in a different place. And you won’t have the same programs that you had before. And…… and so on and so on. I’m sure you know what I mean….. There are obvious benefits, but clearly there are downsides to having replacement computer, which, whilst being emotional and personal issues, cannot be discounted.
So what to do?
Well, the first thing to say is that because buying a replacement computer or upgrading an existing PC is such a very personal experience, at Brosys we won’t tell you what you should do. What we can do though is to offer advice about the benefits of the repair and the benefits of an upgrade and the associated costs.
We can help to make an upgrade to a new computer as painless as possible, we may be able to suggest ways of working around the problem with an existing PC as a short term fix. We will even tell you what we would do if we were in your position. But at the end of the day, the choice is yours.
