    Leasing Computers

    Hi

    Does anyone lease any computers at all? If so do they work out cheaper? And who do you use as suppliers?

    How does it really work?

    Thanks

    We leased PC for a good few years and found it nothing but trouble and a lot of hard work, at the end of the lease the companyes (and the companyes changed hands every other week) want the equipment back as if brand new, I.e no stickers or marks of any kind after 3 years in a school..... and if the kit didnt pass there inspection you got a huge fine.

    Thats just experance as the person who spent all his time cleaning them.

    We do lease/purchase through syscap, at the end of a three year lease the ownershiop of all the kit transfers to us for a nominal fee (usually about £100)

    This way you don't have to worry about getting everything back in pristine condition or storing all the boxes and manuals for the duration of the lease.

    PS as for suppliers, anyone you like the invoices just go straight to the leasing company....

    lease

    We lease from dell 0% and £1 cheaper than buying outright I have been very impressed by them so far 2 years into a 3 year deal. Servers and workstations there support is first class.

    Hi,

    We lease our PCs over three or 4 years (depends on the warranty) and it works fine for us. The up side for us in Wales (who lack the seeming large budgets of England) is that the capital can be spread over 3 years instead of having to come out in one year.

    The school tended to lease PC's before i started here. Since I have been here in the 8 years we have never leased as we have always been lucky to have sufficient funds to purchase outright. This may not be the case in future.

    I have leased laptops for students on two occsaions through syscap and can recommend them and their insurance company Burnetts & Associates who manage all of our Direct Debit collections meaning they is little administration needed at my end.

    I see you say the equipment can be bought for a nominal fee at the end of the lease under some leasing arrangements. Does this happen when leasing from Dell?
    why would you extend a lease? Do you get new equipment by doing this?
    From not a financial wizard.
