Computer Replacement Costs

I need to get estimates on replacing our existing Windows 7 systems with new Windows 10 systems. I've looked at the pricing on Dell's website, but since I need to replace 19 desktops and 2 laptops I wasn't sure if there was the possibility of any sort of bulk discounts. Here are the systems I am looking at to meet our needs:

  1. Inspiron Desktop 3268 - Qty: 14
  2. Precision 7820 Tower - Qty: 5
  3. Latitude 3590  - Qty: 2
What is the best way to go about getting pricing on this many systems and what are some possible payment plans? Thanks.

Gig, Click, Crowd: What Will Work Look Like in the Future?

"Working independently is hardly a new development. There have always been professions in which workers don’t have a specific employment contract, and usually don’t take on employees for the most part, if at all. Architects, graphic designers, musicians, and freelance journalists are quite often self-employed.

Freelancers with specialist knowledge in areas such as software development or SAP configuration have always been part of the IT sector. These workers really appreciate the high degree of flexibility this type of work entails: They can more or less decide how they divide up their time, can usually choose where they want to work, and – what is often the most important factor – they don’t have a boss, but a client instead, and might even have several at any given time. This model also offers these clients a great deal of flexibility – they can assign projects at short notice, without having to invest in new employees. This type of employment used to offer self-employed workers a number of financial benefits. Many people were able to earn significantly more money than they would have if they were employed in a permanent position, which in turn meant that social security wasn’t a pressing concern.

Of course, this model of freelancing continues to exist. However, it is taking on a significant, new dimension in the digital age. While self-employed workers used to (and still do) find projects through networking and referrals, the Web has now stepped in to take over this role. Dedicated platforms now put clients and freelancers in contact with one another, while platform operators provide the infrastructure, set the rules, and earn a commission for doing so.

This ‘platform economy’ has many faces, as evident by the diverse range of terms that have developed in its wake – from the gig economy, to crowd working, click working, and micro-tasking, depending on the main focus of the job. What all these models have in common is that they don’t offer an employment contract for a permanent position. Instead, they revolve around the allocation of individual commissions and projects that are taken on by people who do not have a contract with the company. That’s why the term ‘gig,’ usually reserved for musicians, offers such a fitting analogy.

While platforms such as Twago and Upwork still mainly cater to traditional self-employed workers and freelancers, others have tapped into completely new markets, or even created them from scratch. The most famous example of this type of platform is Uber, a rideshare service that brings drivers and passengers together. It functions solely as a go-between – at least officially – and is not considered a client or employer. Some platforms in the gig economy offer services that are performed onsite, such as Helpling, which advertises cleaning services, or MyHammer, which offers DIY services. These platforms have taken on the role that classified ads or the bulletin board at the supermarket used to occupy. While the Web has a wider reach, and you’ll be able to find a more suitable service provider on it, the level of competition is also higher online."

    I was born in the 70's and feel cheated by how the world has turned out, I was expecting to be living on the moon by now , none of this gig economy was in my dreams.

    Welcome to the community!! Can you explain how we can help you? Are you asking if the Switches support having DHCP Server embedded or DHCP Servers in general?

    Welcome aboard!

    The 5548 does have DHCP server as a feature.

    The 6248 does not support dhcp server.

    If I’m honest however I’d stick to a router if you can or a server doing this task as the switches aren’t the most intuitive when it comes to configuring a scope.
