PC rental guide: how to choose the right kind of computer
All-in-one PCs or desktop rentals are a fantastic option for a wide range of scenarios. Whether you need a large number of PCs for a short-term requirement, such as in order to facilitate an exam or training session, or need a high-spec computer for a specific event or project, renting a desktop PC for business use is a lot less expensive than buying the equipment outright.
What’s more, computer hire also gives you access to plenty of the latest and greatest tech – so you won’t be stuck with something old, with outdated technology that is sluggish and tired. But with so many kinds of computers out there, how do you decide which PC is right for you for the right money? Read our PC rental tips to narrow down to the kind of computer that will work for you in your case.
Here are the top things you need to consider when renting a desktop PC for business use.
Which operating system (OS) do you need?
The two primary operating systems on the market are from leading manufacturers Microsoft and Apple, running Windows and iOS, respectively. What’s the difference between them?
By far the most widely used OS, most of your end users are likely familiar with the functionality of a Windows PC. This operating system is a great all-around, s perfect for running a wide range of software, and is easy to use with lots of great storage. It’s built for general training, examinations, and business and study usage.
Apple’s iOS is targeted to high-end, high-performance computing. It’s very popular among graphic designers, CAD engineers and working with creative video editing, or indeed any time you need seriously powerful computing. It’s a great option if you’re offering training for any kind of design purpose, and it's also ideal when you are temporarily using freelance designers who need a powerful machine for just a few weeks.
Which kind of task do you need computer rental for?
Another way of approaching this question is to think about the category the task you’ll need the computer hire for. This will help you narrow down your options:
Will you be renting out a large number of computers for students to sit an exam? In many cases, you’ll just need a standard, entry-level computer with preloaded software. Talk to our friendly advisors about your requirements.
Different kinds of training require different kinds of computing power. Again, if the training just needs a simple programme, then you may only need an entry-level computer. On the other hand, if you’re offering a 3D design course, you’ll definitely benefit from something with more power.
Do you do a lot of PC gaming? Will you need the PC rental for a gaming event or competition? Gaming PCs are specifically designed to support the heavy power usage of computer games, so choose a gaming PC with lots of storage space for this purpose.
Do you need computers to temporarily kit out an office? Think about the kinds of computers your staff will need and the configuration and then select the right PC from there. We can pre-load software onto all our available computers for hire to help you set up quickly and easily.
Consider other special requirements
Besides these core questions, it’s also valuable to think about special requirements or specs you might need from your desktop computer hire:
Touch screen: Great for displays at events or for interactive and collaborative teamwork
Design-oriented: Some PCs incorporate components like touch screen, styluses and other features to facilitate design
Additional USB ports
Screen share abilities
Connection to a tablet phone
Of course, if you need something more mobile and lightweight, consider renting laptops instead. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff has the experience to help you decide about what will be best for you and your team. There are also custom PC options available when needed.
