It's the start of a new year, and you may be wondering whether it's time to repair or replace your--

your laptop or desktop. Here are some things to consider:


  • Age: "The average lifespan for a computer running at optimal performance is 3-5 years," according to BVTech LLC. If your device is older than that, it may not be compatible with newer software or operating system upgrades. It may also be at risk for security issues.


  • Warranty: If your device is still under warranty and less than 5 years old, it might be worth getting it repaired.


  • Upgradeability: You may be able to extend the life of your computer by upgrading its memory or storage. IT professionals can run diagnostic tests to see if your device is capable of being upgraded and which components should be changed. For example, adding more RAM or switching to a Solid-State Drive (SSD) could improve performance.


  • Multiple issues: If your computer is experiencing several issues at once, such as loud noises, operating system issues, or compatibility problems with peripherals, it may be time to replace it.


  • Cost: Ultimately, you'll want to consider the cost of repairing versus replacing your device. If the repair costs are high and your device is old, it might make more sense to invest in a new one.


By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision about whether to repair or replace your laptop or desktop."
