Future of computer repair
In this article, I will explore some future repair possibilities of computers, laptops, PC and other electronic processing devices like hard drives, Raids etc.
Computer repair is a process of bring back a dead computer and laptop to life. Computer repair includes software repair, hardware repair and data recovery. As we know, computers and laptops consist of many parts. These parts include hard drive, RAM, logic board, power supply, speaker, network card, modem and DVD drive. All these parts are replaceable. These parts are important factors in computer repair. Computer and laptop repair is very common these days. There are millions and millions of computers in consumer market at the moment. There is always some kind of use for computers and laptops. Some people use them for storing data, other use them for browsing. Student use them for studies, scientists use them for research and processing. They have use in all areas like media, automobile, offices and all kinds of businesses. More use means more computers with problems. It’s simple if there are computers everywhere, they will need repair when there is a problem.
Computers and laptops are becoming cheaper and cheaper day by day. The question is what will be the future of laptop and computer repair? As the world is moving from PCs to laptops and now to smart phones, the danger is growing. This danger has two aspects. Computers used to be expensive before because, of different accessories. A desktop computer comes with a keyboard, mouse, monitor and CPU. These accessories cost more which keeps their price at a fair level. So with the groving demand of laptops and smart phones, the demand for PC is decreasing. This moves repair service from PCs to laptops and smart phones. There is another danger that may be a disaster for repair business in the world of computers. Day by day manufacturers are using less and less parts inside computers and laptop systems. New Apple MacBooks and iMacs have built-in RAM and SSD drives with less moving parts (which means less hard drive failure). Also most of the screens are disposable. This situation is a big threat to PC repair services. Everything happens for a reason. This means there will be more and more jobs for component level repair for motherboards or logic boards.
As things are changing, other services will also be affected. These include manufacturing of computer parts and hard drive repair. Hard drive repair is the big one. As more and more people use smart phones and SSD drives, the business of data recovery will be badly affected.
The next problem is the low price of laptops and phones. Laptops and phones can be replaced with a new device for a fairly reasonable price. Does this means the repair will die? I don’t think so. Here is how. Adults like to use big screens, which means PCs and laptops usage will be alive forever. There is a craze for small screen devices. When this boom settles after a while and the prices of big screens goes down, users will come back to big screens. This will be fully true for laptop usage if not that good for PC usage. As we know a lot of businesses depend on PCs and laptops, chances are they will take steps to promote big screen computer to attract users once again. As discussed above, using more and more smart phones and SSD hard drives, will have bad impact on the business of data recovery. The data recovery business will take a turn in new direction. Smart phones like iPhone, blackberry and iPads data recovery will grove. As SSD drives can also fail, the data recovery of these drives will take a different direction which means these drives will need data recovery using newer techniques and tools which will keep this business alive.
In this article, I talked about the future of computer and laptop repair. I also threw light on future trends, how things will change in different direction.
