When buying a new computer, you often have the decision to make about how long of a warranty you should buy.  Options usually range from 1 year to 3 years and it can be tempting to opt for the 1-year option to save a little money today.  However, that could cost you much more in the long run. Keeping computers under warranty can provide several benefits for your organization:

  1. Hardware Protection: Warranty coverage ensures that if any hardware issues arise during the warranty period, the manufacturer will repair or replace the endpoints at no additional cost. This can help reduce unexpected repair expenses and downtime.
  2. Productivity: With warranty coverage, you can quickly address any hardware issues and minimize the impact on productivity. Instead of waiting for repairs or replacements, you can get your endpoints back up and running quickly.
  3. Future-Proofing: As technology evolves, having warranty coverage can provide peace of mind knowing that your endpoints are protected against potential defects or malfunctions. This can extend the lifespan of your devices and reduce the need for premature upgrades.
  4. Cost Savings: While warranty coverage may require an initial investment, it can save you money in the long run by avoiding out-of-pocket expenses for repairs or replacements and extended downtime for your employees.

Overall, keeping endpoints under warranty can be a prudent investment to ensure the reliability, productivity, and longevity of your IT infrastructure.
