Getting a short-term, business-to-business laptop rental can be a really great deal if you find yourself in need of a temporary solution. Renting a laptop may seem like an odd concept but I assure you that it is not without its merits. Laptop rentals are wildly popular with business professionals that are attending, presenting at or setting up a booth at an event or are traveling for an important business meeting or conference. Laptop rentals allow you to have all the benefits of a top-of-the-line laptop without having to buy one!
Laptop Rentals are lightweight, portable, sleek, and powerful which makes them perfect for a wide array of situations, like training classes, projects or presentations. Some people rent a single laptop for use during a business presentation whereas others rent 1,000 laptops for large training seminars or classes. I've even seen people rent a laptop to assist with tax season when an extra laptop can come in real handy.
Any laptop rental you need can be customized to your exact specifications. Rentacomputer.com offers laptops with various amounts of processing power depending on your needs. If you need a quick and robust processor, then an Intel Core i7 processor will do the trick. If you only need to run a light and simple application then you may only need Core 2 Duo or Core i3 processor. If you're not sure what you need then one of Rentacomputer's Tech Travel Agents can help you decide which processor is right for your needs!
Your laptop rental can also come with a variety of memory capacities as well. If you need a lot of processing power then you may need a laptop with 8GB of RAM or more. The more RAM the laptop has the faster it will perform. However, if you are only using your laptop for simple tasks, like word processing, then a 2GB or 4GB rental should do you just fine.
But how much does a laptop rental cost? Well, that depends entirely on what you need. A traditional laptop rental from Rentacomputer.com typically costs $99 per day. However, there are a lot of different factors that can determine what your final cost is actually going to be. One factor is the type of laptop you need. A standard Windows Laptop Rental is usually $99. A MacBook Pro Rental is a bit more expensive at $175 and a high-end MacBook Air Rental will run you $220. But that's not all. There are 6 main factors that determine your laptop rental price: Lead Time, Specifications, Length of Time, Quantity Needed, Delivery Location, and Availability (learn more about that here).
If you are in need of a temporary laptop, whether it be for a convention, trade show, event, conference, meeting, training session or a temporary replacement for your personal laptop then a laptop rental is a pretty smart bet! Rentacomputer.com offers local delivery and installation anywhere in the United States and their professional Tech Travel Agents will work with you every step of the way to ensure that what you're getting is exactly what you want and need!
The sales of Chromebooks are expected to exceed 5 million this year. The simple to use laptops with low costs are making a big impact on its competitors across the nation. Chromebooks will still remain a niche player and sales of laptops by Google Chrome OS is suppose to triple to 14.4 million by 2017. So if that prediction is true, Chromebooks would then represent 5% of all personal computers selling in 2017.
The Chromebook is the quickest personal computer to buy, prices vary from $220-300, making it an easy decision to buy if a computer is needed as soon as possible. Even though the notebook market in not doing as well as everyone hoped, the OEM's are trying to find the most accurate solution. Back in 2007, windows launched Netbooks, the cheap, lightweight and underpowered laptops. They peaked in 2009 but then fell vary quickly in 2010-2011. During that time they did however capture about 20% of the portable PC market, so now people believe history will repeat itself with Chromebooks.
With the expected increase in sales over the next few years, the hardware will steal share from Windows, and this is why Microsoft is concerned about the rise. At the moment, Microsoft certainly sees Chromebooks as a threat even when shipment levels are low. Because of this, the company has already ran anti-Chromebook advertisements and pledged to redefine values with laptops as low as $199. The low-pricing strategy will be driven by several factors including Windows 8.1 with Bing, or having a major discount with Windows licensing. But how much of a threat Chromebooks pose is unclear at this time, but 5% of sales is 5%, which is nearly as much as Apple's Mac current market share. Google might be able to boost sales even more if it expands distribution internationally. In 2013, just 82% of Chromebooks sold were North American customers. So what if more low priced Chromebooks were available to more regions globally? Not a bad idea to think about.
For now, all predictions are unclear, and it is possible that 2014 sales will turn out to be higher than expected.
One of the best things you can do to help yourself grow, and also help your business grow, is to actively attend in-person networking events as often as possible. If you are an entrepreneur, conferences are an incredible way to keep up with new developments in your industry, finding out about beneficial new services, networking with other business owners, and even meeting potential new clients for yourself. You never know who you will meet or what the outcome could be!
Going to every conference ever can be really pricey considering the cost of flights these days. There are some conferences that certainly should not be overlooked though, so here are a few that you should strongly consider checking out!
FailCon is a really unique one-day conference for entrepreneurs, investors, developers, or anyone involved in the world of technology.
Everyone knows everyone's success stories, but no one ever hears about their previous failures and what it took to get there. FailCon is not only great for networking and everything else that a conference should be great for, but it really focuses on putting everything out there on the table. By studying everyone's failures, you can prepare yourself for success. Nothing can teach you how to win like learning how to fail, or how not to.
South By Southwest Interactive
South By Southwest has kind of lost touch with it's roots. It definitely isn't what it used to be, and some view it as more of an excuse to go on vacation and have fun while pretending to still be productive. But honestly, everyone goes, and it's still a fantastic place for networking. Honestly, because of its draw, it may be THE best place for networking and talking to potential clients. That's what this one is all about.
