CDW Making It Easier to Replace Costly, Aging PCs

Company Unveils Special Offers, Provides Tool to Help Tech Pros Decide When To Upgrade
VERNON HILLS, Ill., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — CDW Corporation (NASDAQ:CDWC) , a leading provider of technology products and services to business, government and education, is taking new steps to help its customers avoid the pitfalls of aging technology. Research indicates many I.T. professionals are concerned their PCs, many of which were purchased as part of Y2K preparations, are overdue for upgrades and replacement. CDW is addressing this issue by offering special prices on select PCs and providing an online tool that can help I.T. pros decide if and when to replace their equipment.
“Investing in new PCs may not have been a top priority for many of our customers looking for ways to save money during the recent economic downturn,” said Steve Schuldt, vice president, CDW. “But many are now realizing that as equipment ages, total cost of ownership (TCO) can actually increase, due to repair costs, software or operating systems that are outmoded or no longer supported, and other reasons.”

My spin: CDW has great, fast service and is only going to grow and get better.
