As a technology company we have heard many reasons why businesses do not like to upgrade their computer systems and many of them are valid. Below are the three most popular reasons why PC users turn down upgrades.

A casual end user can still use it for word processing, browsing the internet, etc. But what many do not realize that software may become obsolete and new infrastructure (like servers and software) may be incompatible. With the prices of desktop computers on the downhill, a new higher performing computer may be better to avoid future headaches.
