When it comes to technology fix versus replace is a big question.
Sometimes can be something completely illogical it would seem too.
Fix versus replace is always a personal decision, budget decision, and a technical decision too.
Usually we will only recommend replacement when something is really out of date or more cost effective to replace versus fix.
Although on occasion we have had ancient technology that maybe runs really expensive software that can’t be replaced or duplicated and in those cases sometimes people choose to keep fixing ancient technology to preserve the software.
Technology that is high end or high quality usually might just need some tweaks, or a cleaning to bring it back to life. Maybe even a new part or two.
Our usual rule of thumb is dependent on the cost to replace versus fix, but also taking into account if the hardware is sound also.
There really is no magic way to decide in our experience to fix or replace but we will always do our best to help you find the right answer for your situation.
