I helped a customer install a new Windows 7 computer this weekend. The old computer was an older Windows Vista computer for my customer’s service business – Quickbooks 2014 is one of the main uses on this computer.

On the new computer, Quickbooks started in 20 seconds or so. The business owner said it would have taken 10 minutes on the old computer!

It is often hard to spend money on a new computer for business or home when the old one is still “working”, but keep in mind what the value of your time is worth. With the time saved with a new computer, you could – contact new customers or maybe make more sales to existing customers, work less time for the same money, or if nothing else – be less frustrated waiting for your old computer to finish!
