Aging Technology | When is a Good Time to Refresh?

Your technology may be aging out of economical repair range. It’s most likely time for a refresh, especially if your equipment is over seven years old.

Smarty PointingBut first, let’s answer these questions:

  • Do you know how old your printer is?
  • Can you remember when you purchased it?
  • Do you know how many pages you’ve printed on the device?
  • Do you know how many times you’ve had it repaired and how much it has cost you?
  • Are spare parts still available for the machine?

    HP 4plus

    You may even have one of these old work horses still around. Did you know this HP 4 Plus was introduced to the market in May 1994?

Way back in 1994 when this HP 4 Plus was introduced to the market, the street price for this model was upwards of $1,700.00. Based on the functions and capabilities of this old machine, you could replace it for far less than what it would cost to repair it.

For instance, a brand new HP M507dn only costs around $750.00 but when you compare the capabilities of each machine, replacing the HP 4 Plus is the absolute only option.


Why pay more and more money to keep fixing the 4 plus when you can replace it for less than half the price you originally paid for it!

It really is a no brainer.

For what it will cost you in labor over time, replacing these old machines is a far more economical option. The financial, productivity and security benefits far outweigh your attachment to the old machines. Not only that, when you choose to refresh your fleet with us, we will happily remove the old equipment and recycle it for you.

Inventory and Assess your printer fleet:

With many schools, organizations and businesses having employees working remotely, now is a great time to have your on site print and copy devices inventoried and assessed. With offices empty, you won’t need to worry about social distance. One of our trained technicians can come in and check out all of your equipment to make sure it is in clean working order. At some point in the hopefully near future, we will all be back to business as usual. You want your equipment ready to go once your staff is back to work and your students are once again filling the classrooms.

It’s easy to schedule a printer inventory. You can call us at 410-636-1700 or email us at service@amalaserline.com. It will be our pleasure to assess and recommend any repairs, cleanings or replacements you may need.

Refresh Your Printers Where needed:

Although right now may not seem like the best time to replace these old dinosaurs, this actually may be a very opportune time, especially if your staff is working from home. Laser Line has both purchase and leasing options available to you so you can choose the option that is right for you.
