Upgrade from Windows 7 – Re-certified Win 10 PCs

All include 1 Year Warranty! Download PDF

 

Windows 7 Support Is Ending

With the end of Windows 7 support quickly approaching, IT Xpress is offering a selection of re-certified business desktops and laptops that are well built, run Windows 10 Pro, have ultra fast solid state hard drives, and a 1 year warranty! But do you need to actually replace your computer?

Your Windows 7 computer will still work on January 15th, the day official support ends. The end of support means Microsoft will not be releasing any more security updates for Windows 7. So over time as vulnerabilities are found, the system becomes more vulnerable. We strongly encourage our clients to get to Windows 8 or 10 across their network by then, but if it stretches into February you will probably be fine, especially if you have solid virus protection. 

Your existing hardware may also be upgradable to Windows 10 instead of replacing it. We strongly recommend upgrading regular hard drives to solid state drives, which will give existing hardware a boost in performance and a few more years of life on Windows 10, without the expense of replacement. 

If you are a current My ITXpert client, as we review your exact hardware, we’ll give you guidance on any machines we feel are worth upgrading. If you are not a current client and want to know if your system(s) can be upgraded, click the Start Menu and type CMD. When the black cmd icon appears, right click it and select ‘Run As Administrator’. Click YES to allow changes and in the black window that appears, type dxdiag and hit Enter. Wait. Click No when asked to check driver signatures. After a bit, a window with your system’s inner details will appear. Click the ‘Save All Information’ button and send the saved text file to [email protected] so we can review the system configuration and determine if it’s worth upgrading

With all that said, if you do need to replace existing machines (or expand your network with additional PCs), we’re proud to offer a robust selection of re-certified business machines. Business grade PCs are built sturdier and include expanded connectivity and internal HW features that consumer grade PCs do not. Plus Windows 10 Pro is required if you have a Microsoft Domain managing your infrastructure.

Do I Need A New Monitor or Keyboard/Mouse?

This is completely up to you. Our systems will work with all existing peripherals. 24” LCD monitors can be purchased for < $149. 21” Monitors often for $99 or less. Wireless keyboard/mouse combos are $30. So they will add to the replacement cost, but you probably will still save over buying a new PC w/o them.

* These prices are approximate. Costs for refurbished desktops and solid state drive upgrades can vary week by week. These are the average prices based on recent price movements. We will confirm exact pricing with you when you place your order.

Laptops

Because of the wide variety of models and the almost daily change in pricing, it’s hard to list models of recertified laptops we often carry. But our refurbished laptops are always within a range of specifications and pricing ideal for business (and residential):

  • Minimum Intel i5 Processor (i7’s Available)
  • Minimum 4GB of DDR3 or 4 RAM (8GB recommended for most business use)
  • Minimum 1366×768 resolution display in 14.1 and 15.6” Sizes
  • Minimum 256GB Solid State Hard Drive (512, 1TB and 2TB available by request)
  • All business laptops we sell can be docked into optional docking stations, allowing for easy connection to external monitors, networking, peripherals, and power.
  • We tend to carry Lenovo Thinkpads and HP Probooks. Both are sturdy, have a variety of ports and work well with Windows 10 Pro. 

What Are Solid State Drives?

Solid State hard drives offer a significant performance improvement over normal hard drives, often 10-15 times faster than standard hard drives. These systems will boot in seconds and applications will start almost instantly. We can also install larger 512GB, 1TB and 2TB solid state drives for an additional cost if storage requirements dictate. If your desktops store sensitive data such as HIPAA regulated healthcare information or other sensitive data like credit cards, SSNs, legal documents, etc. – we can install advanced solid state drives with built in hardware encryption, which provide security without the usual performance impact of encrypting your system drive..

How Much RAM Do I Need?

The amount of memory or ‘RAM’ needed for a desktop depends on the expected use. If a desktop is used to primarily run 1-2 applications (web browser, email, a couple Office documents), 4GB is OK. If you expect to run many applications at once, open many browser tabs simultaneously, or use memory hungry applications such as Quickbooks, photo/video editors or custom business applications that run your business, 8GB-16GB is definitely recommended. We recommend 8GB as the minimum for business use to ensure the systems are fast and responsive for years as Windows and applications grow in size.

What About My Existing Applications and Data?

If you feel comfortable handling the on site work of swapping out the hardware and setting up things like your business applications, printers, etc., we can do most data transfers in our store for $69 per system.

If you would rather have us handle the process from start to finish, this is more labor intensive and we recommend clients budget 2-3 hours of labor (@ $89/hour) per system to allow our technicians to:

  • Copy all user data onto external storage
  • Swap out the hardware (and if needed monitors, keyboards, etc.)
  • Configure system on network/domain
  • Copy user data back from external storage
  • Setup Printers/Scanners as needed
  • Setup Business Applications as needed (If system acted as a ‘server’ – add 0-2 hours)

What About Repairs?

We try to stick with a small selection of PC models so we can keep a number of model specific parts on site like power supplies and motherboards. This allows us to repair most models the same day or within 1-2 days to get you back up and running quickly. 

All re-certified systems come with a 1 Year Warranty on parts and labor!
