Thoughts on renting PC's
« on: 11:56:43, 19/11/19 »

How would you feel about renting a computer (similarly to how you would rent a car) over buying one?

Off the top of my head here's how this would way up for me personally but I'm really interested to see what others (including you, yes... you reading this!) think.

No upfront cost.
pay as you go.
Free support and guarantee with the computer.
New, up to date hardware.

Data / personal data on the computer upon returning.
over the long term it could be more expensive.
Unable to add upgrades to the physical computer hardware.

How much would you be willing to pay a month for it to be worth it to you? What would be your biggest concerns about renting over buying?

Your opinion matters to me whether young, old, gamer, editor or just an avid web browser so don't feel that you can't add feedback to this post no matter how big or small, negative or positive.  And a massive thank you to anyone that does!

This post is for market research as I'd like to start a business in this area, so if anyone has any business advice too that they would like to add it would be massively helpful to me :)

Thanks for taking the time to read my topic, you're awesome  8)
