Learn2 Purchase Office Equipment
(2 steps)
Equipped for success

As if starting a business from scratch isn't scary enough, add in the formidable element of office equipment and you may feel a migraine setting in. Whether you're looking at phones, palmtop computers, PCs, or copy machines, all equipment comes in a range of models, prices, and (if you're a Mac user) colors.

Technology can be a costly investment, so you want to do it right the first time. With the help of this 2torial, you'll be able to do just that.


Before you begin

Given the array of dazzling tech toys out there, it's all too easy to act like a teenager on a shopping spree. And there are a lot of salespeople out there ready to convince you of the value of a widget that blinks every time you get a fax.

Maintain a realistic grip on your budget and your needs. Be aware of unnecessary items, and make sure you walk out of the store with more than just an atrocious bill.
