Essential IT Solutions Month-End Sale April 2021

Acer, Asus, Dell, HP or Lenovo laptop? Which to choose?

While we all might have our favourite brands, it usually is up to what’s in the wallet that determines the choice of the purchase. Fortunately, we have all these famous brand laptops available as refurbished laptops at vastly reduced prices.

If you’re in the market for a laptop – either to replace your old laptop or if you need a second laptop – our range of laptops start with entry-level Intel Celeron and Pentium processors, through to Intel Core i3 mid-range performers and right up to Core i7 performance laptops.

The prices are reflected in the processor generation model and other technical features. An i5 fifth-generation will typically be cheaper than a sixth, seventh or later generation model. A laptop with a touch screen usually costs a little more than one with a traditional screen.

A good desktop computer at a good price

The challenges that COVID lockdowns and loadshedding brought resulted in at least one social synergy: bargain hunting.

We all are looking to save a Rand or two wherever we can, now more so than ever. And one of the ways to save is refurbished desktop computers and laptops because you get what you need at a reduced cost, often up to half of the original price.

This is particularly good news since so many of us now have to work or study from home and might need to either purchase a computer for the first time – perhaps having previously only used the computer at the office – or need to upgrade that old home computer.

Festive Season Deals 2020

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Lots of fun for everyone… 🙂

When you start hearing Jingle Bells over the radio and in the shopping malls it just brings on a smile, doesn’t it? Although the song has no original connection to Christmas, which is not mentioned in the lyrics, it certainly announces that very special time of the year when the world seem to be a little bit more at peace and there is an air of excitement in the neighbourhood.

This year, because of COVID-19 restrictions, you won’t be allowed to jump onto Father Xmas’s lap to whisper to him which new gaming gear items or CPU or graphics card you wish to have. But we’ll gladly step in for him and have your dream Xmas gift delivered to your door.

Keeping my internet connection on the boil with 12V

My house has more than its fair share of inverters and 100 a/h batteries lurking around but using such devices to keep my fibre connection (ONT fibre box and modem) operating during Eskom shutdowns was something of an overkill, especially as the internet equipment lives in the kitchen.

So, I bought an 850va UPS device to keep the internet alive but aside from the fact that such equipment is not meant to run for long periods, it turned out that this machine could not quite manage to stay alive (phone system was also connected) for the usual 2 hour blackout which meant a loss of connectivity.

Computer plus screen power promotion

What is better than a good computer? Answer: a good computer plus a big screen!

The bigger the screen, the more likely your work efficiency will increase.

A bigger screen is ideal for when working on spreadsheets, especially when you need more than one spreadsheet open at a time and particularly if you deal with lots of columns in each of those spreadsheets.

Almost needless to mention, a bigger computer screen also is ideal for editing videos or photo collages.

But since all work and no play makes for a dull day, obviously a bigger screen is so better for watching videos and, of course, playing games.
