laptop and desktop life expectancy
Still not prepared my action plan, it's hanging over me like homework on a Sunday night:D
What life expectancy do you expect and plan from from desktops and staff laptops?
I've got a suite of 22 computers that are 3 years old in March, and 12 desktops in yearbases that are 5 - 6 years old, my plan is to replace 12 of the suite computers this year (march) and cascade down to the yearbase computers, with the remaining suite computers replaced next march with a new server and upgarde to windows 7. As the yearbase computers really need replacing but aren't used half as much as the suite computers I thought cascading the suite computers would be a feasible solution.
I'm starting to replace staff laptops after 3 years, as they are used daily in the classroom connected to the smartboards and suffer daily misuse:( I'm a little concerned they aren't lasting longer.
Does this OK?
