Careful planning is essential when buying technology for a business. The bottom line is always looming and enterprise-level hardware is just too expensive, and too over-featured, to justify. Most small organisations will start out without a dedicated IT team, meaning that systems need to be easy to run and manage, with vendors who offer a good level of technical support.
With a little research, you'll find more than enough products that meet your needs. Good design and user experiences aren't just limited to consumer products, and even business-specified machines are beginning to offer a few fringe benefits like multimedia playback and touch screen interfaces.
Follow our advice, and you'll be on your feet on no time.
