How important is flexibility to you when buying a desktop PC?
A desktop PC is primarily intended for use in a specific location. Many immediately think of a tower that is placed under the desk. Such a system is of course not very flexible and looks very bulky under the desk.
If you value flexibility, you should take this into account when buying a desktop PC. One option is to go for a notebook. At first glance, it doesn’t offer the same features as a classic desktop PC. However, nowadays this is no longer true.
A modern notebook combines the performance of a desktop PC with the mobility of a laptop. An example is the PrimeBook Circular. The notebook can be equipped with a range of powerful CPUs up to Intel i7. This gives you the processing power of a desktop PC.
In combination with a docking station, the notebook becomes a regular desktop PC. You connect a classic keyboard and a large monitor to the docking station. With a flick of the wrist, you separate the PrimeBook Circular from the docking station. Then you have a full-fledged notebook for work on the go. This way, the notebook becomes a desktop replacement.
What role do upgradeability and component replacement play?
Not everyone thinks about the future when buying a desktop PC. What is certain is that one day your new computer will reach the limits of its performance. In this situation, it makes sense if you can increase the performance by upgrading. It’s even better if such an upgrade is as simple as possible.
This is where the concept of Circular by Design comes into play. It means that the manufacturer of a computer system allows for and enables an upgrade at a later date. Prime Computer implements the principle of Circular by Design in the PrimeBook Circular, for example.
This makes it possible to easily upgrade the individual components at a later date. The modular design makes upgrading very easy. You can easily replace and upgrade yourself. At the same time, you save money because you don’t have to buy a completely new system. The environment also benefits, as less electronic waste is produced.
