Market research firm Techaisle conducted a survey with 1000 small businesses in the US, UK, China, Brazil and India, funded in part by Microsoft and Intel, and found that having older PCs negatively impact small businesses in several ways, including productivity and maintenance costs. What’s more, the study found that 40% of PCs in small businesses are more than 3 years old, and many are still running Windows XP. Looking at specific hardware and software innovations that help make new PCs more efficient and people that use them more productive, Techaisle pointed out the benefits such as improved graphics, energy efficiency and wireless communication in PCs with faster, multicore processors, including those in Intel’s 2010 Core vPro processor family. Techaisle suggested upgrading to Windows 7, in particular Windows 7 Professional, rather than Home Premium, for its advantages in stability, security, collaboration, manageability and compatibility with older applications.
