Laptops are an essential part of your professional and personal life. Portability is the main feature that distinguishes laptops from desktops. While using your laptop at various locations, it is important to protect it from theft. It is also equally important to ensure the safety of data on your laptop. Security is important for laptops you own and those rented from laptop rental companies.

In order to prevent theft of your laptop you should never leave it unattended in public places. Passwords and access codes should not be left in the laptop case. Never lose sight of your laptop even if it is passing through airport security. When being used in public, a screen guard should be used to prevent others from viewing what you’re accessing. Label your laptop and the case. Do not set it down beside you in a public place, and even if you do, rest it against your hand or leg, so that you are aware of its presence at all times.

Laptop security devices are good security measures. Laptop cables enable you to secure your laptop to a stationary object. Laptop tracing devices can locate your stolen laptop by giving its precise location when connected to the internet. Alarms and motion sensors that go off when the laptop is moved or when the user goes away from it. Passwords prevent unauthorized users from accessing data. Login and BIOS passwords are required to log in and for the system to boot up respectively. Biometric finger readers recognize only prints that it is programmed to. All these measures can be used on a private or a laptop rental.

Ahead of the holiday shopping season, the prices of RIM PalyBook tablets were slashed by retailer Best Buy. Apparently this move has augmented the sales of this device. Best Buy has said that it has sold all the RIM tablets which were available with it. It has also said that it will soon make additional units of the RIM tablets available for consumers.

In the meantime, another low-priced tablet, Kindle Fire, has also become one of the best selling products at Best Buy. An attractive feature of this tablet is its highly modified Android interface that facilitates the purchasing of e-books and online streaming contents. The ‘virtual bookshelf’ and the user interface of Kindle Fire makes it distinct. Although Kindle Fire is a lot different from the traditional tablets, it has been successful in gaining consumer attention. Analysts said that Amazon makes profit not from the Kindle Fire hardware, but from the paid content it makes available on this device. Most analysts expect Kindle Fire to give stiff competition to the popular iPad. However, iPad rental and purchase demand still remains unmatched in the market.

HP was the first manufacturer to show that low-price tablets are capable of attracting customers. The price of its tablet, HP TouchPad, was slashed down when the company decided to terminate its tablet business due to anemic sales. Consumers flocked to the nearest electronic shops to grab the low-priced tablets of HP. But unlike Amazon, which gains profit from its online store, HP and RIM may not gain much profit even though their sales are enhanced. The reason for this is that these devices offer third party applications while Amazon provides its own contents and applications.

Laptop rentals have gained popularity these days as they are a very convenient option. When you rent laptops, your desired device gets delivered to your home at a time you specify. A large number of dealers offering such services have come up, owing to the growing popularity of rentals. Here are some advantages that you may experience through laptop rental services.

Bulk Requirements

Laptops are needed in bulk in some cases. If you are setting up an office, you may need a large number of laptops. Entrepreneurs having budget constraints, may not want to purchase laptops as the expense accompanying it can be quite high. Renting is a much better option in such cases. You can rent as many laptops as you need. They can meet your requirements at modest costs.

Rentals also offer great solutions when you need a large number of laptops for temporary use. For example, if you want to conduct a training session, you will need a large number of systems for a short duration. In such circumstances, renting laptops is more convenient than buying.

Try before Buying

In case you intend to buy an expensive laptop, it is best to try it before making a purchase. Laptop rentals enable you to do so. Opt for rental services of a reputable company for a laptop model that interests you. Try the model for a few days. If it suits your requirements, you can buy it. Otherwise, try a different model that is apt for the kind of requirements you have.

Renting also eases the flow of cash by eliminating long term commitments that come because of making a purchase. Rent payments are tax deductible and thus add to your company’s savings.

Some computer leasing companies offer the benefit of upgrading your equipment to the latest model after a certain period of paying a lease and they do it without charging any additional amount. Major leasing companies have their own team of technicians which will enable you to call for technical support whenever your equipment malfunctions or needs reconfiguring. Technical support and help desk services are free of charge and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some service contracts offered by rental companies take care of everything except for the paper. This includes service parts, toner cartridges and network integration.

Printers form an integral part of the technology infrastructure for most companies. With rental services at your disposal you don’t need to maintain a staff of IT technicians to help you deal with technical difficulties and malfunctions. Rental companies will install all the necessary software and configure it specifically for your needs before they deliver it to your location. The time required for delivery is usually very short. Any additional technical support can be acquired free of cost simply by placing a call with their 24/7 help desk.

Combining services for greater benefits

The operational scope of your business may be limited by your capital budget. Many small companies can’t afford to spend sizable amounts of cash on purchasing hardware without having the business to back it up. Many companies lose out on project bids and business opportunities simply because they don’t have the IT hardware requisites to meet the demand. As an option, smaller companies can look to combine the benefits of a printer rental service with that of a computer rental service and bring down their overall costs. If so, they can hope to match the technological advantages their competitors have at a fraction of the cost.

Printer rental services offer many advantages which include free technical support, logistical efficiency and flexible lease periods. It is a better idea to rent a printer rather than purchase it in case your company is looking to reduce expenditures on capital equipment.
