Computer Trends--Part 2 of 4
Are you outfitting your small business with desktop PCs? Double-check the configuration of the systems you plan to purchase. Many PC makers currently configure business PCs with both a LAN adapter and a modem. However, in many offices this configuration is overkill. When connected via LAN, PCs already enjoy all the benefits a modem connection would offer, such as Internet connection and remote access. In some circumstances, you need both a LAN adapter and a modem, but be aware of this trend in case you don't. You may save a few dollars by having your PC maker build your systems without one of these components.
