Ask our Experts: “I would like a new computer, what do you recommend?”

How to choose your company computers:

Choosing computers for an office can be a huge task. For one, there are thousands of brands and models to choose from and two, there are millions of other people with their own opinions on which one works best. At Granite Tech, we will get you set up with something guaranteed to perform just how you want it to. Here are just a few expert computer recommendations from our team at Granite Tech!


First of all, for a computer to run well and last 3-5 years, it must be configured correctly from the start. We recommend these minimum specs:

  • Windows 10 Professional

  • Processor: i5 or i7

  • 8GB of RAM (minimum)

  • CD/DVD read/write

  • Hard drive: 128 or 256 SSD, 1TB, or hybrid with speed of 7200 RPMs or faster

  • Correct Office Software for the tasks you perform, watch out for Trial Versions

  • 3 Year Warranty

  • Backup Mechanism – USB drives or Memory Sticks

  • Antivirus Program – We recommend ESET NOD32

  • Docking Station, Carrying Case, External Keyboard, Mouse & Display for laptops

  • The system should be initially set up with all the updates, etc.

  • Make sure you have one and only one firewall enabled
