Most people tasked with buying computers for a business will tend to gravitate toward well-known brands. It’s easy to understand why they will make that choice. Some of the reasons include:
- Belief that brand name computers are likely to provide better quality
- Belief that brand name computers are less expensive
- Belief that brand name computers offer better support options
- Belief that brand name computers will offer the best software compatibility
- Belief that brand name computers will give the best performance
The shocking truth is that all of these beliefs are wrong. Not just a little bit wrong, but almost polar opposites of reality. Now if you’ve already been in the habit of buying brand name computers for your business, it’s not something you need to worry about too much. You won’t necessarily experience any major problems as a result of that choice, but it’s not a mistake you should repeat in the future. It’s basically like having a choice between an Edsel and a Mustang, and opting for the Edsel. It will still get you where you’re going, but you’re not likely to win any races with it.
A custom-built computer will always provide the best result because you get to make some decisions about how it is configured. This means it can be tailored precisely to your business needs, and you’re not paying extra for things you don’t need. But there’s much more to the story than just that you can save some money and/or get better performance for what you pay.

Branded Computers are Generally Bad Value
Big brand manufacturers tend to follow the “buy low, sell high” rule when manufacturing their products. When it comes to computers, that can be problematic, because low quality components can wear out more quickly and are likely to experience more performance glitches. They may also be assembled by unskilled labour, with lowly paid factory workers putting components together by following a formula, which they may not always do perfectly.
Even though your brand name computer may come with a warranty and a service contract, these aren’t very helpful to you in mission-critical situations. When your computer is not able to be used for its purpose because you’re waiting for it to be fixed, that causes a bottleneck in your whole business process.
A custom-built computer can have high-quality components installed by experts. The components are chosen according to what meets your specific needs and your budget. The result will be a faster, more reliable computer that gives optimal efficiency.
It will also be less limiting than the typical branded computer. It will be much easier to upgrade. It will have better cooling. It may even run more quietly. Whatever the situation maybe, you’ll experience better performance, better software compatibility, and much greater reliability.
Just What You Need and Nothing You Don’t Need
Another really big problem with branded systems is they usually include a lot of bloatware. This is bundled software surplus to your needs and which may not serve any practical purpose other than enriching the manufacturer by allowing them to collect data about you or to present advertising to you.
Custom built computers contain only the operating system and whatever software you need for performing your business computing. The important difference is you get to choose every item of software to be installed, and that means you won’t have to worry about the security risks, wasted storage space and bandwidth, or confusing tangle of bloatware that you’d get with a branded system.
