Leasing or buying client computers

By kashmeir63 ·
Hi,
I'm trying to figure out if it is better to lease computers for my company's clients or buy the computers. I'm not sure which is more effective. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank You

Both have their Tax Advantages but at the end of the day with the Leased ones you do not own them so you effectively have no Data Security that can be implemented.

Now if Data Security isn't an issue and you do not have to worry about any competitor gaining access to your Data Leasing is the way to go. Generally works great on Home Systems that are only used for games. But is a nightmare in reality as there is still as yet no proven way to totally eradicate the Data on any HDD so it can not be recovered. Here once a HDD enters the place it is only ever removed in bits with the platters destroyed.

It's your money you make the decision but make sure it is an informed decision and that you consider everything.

I agree that it really boils down to tax advantages and life-cycle management. If you're going to look at the PC as simply a service instead of a purchase, and you need upgrades every 3 years, then leasing may be the better option. You need to talk to an accountant after talking to the leasing rep to see which is a better options for your clients.

We needed 60 new systems and we had to decide if we were going to lease or purchase we chose lease, because in the end we can send these back and upgrade. The other scenario is we pay the residual for next to nothing then onsell to someone else. for big business leasing is the way to go $$$$
