Laptop computer rental prices vary by length of time, location, specification and product availability. Monthly computer rentals cost less per day than daily rentals. Typically desktop computers rent for less money than notebook or laptop computers.

Period of Time - Daily, Weekly and Monthly Rates

"Monthly rentals typically are around $225, but still dependent upon specification, availability and delivery location."

In most places, computer rental rates are based on daily, weekly and or a monthly rates. Tech Travel Agents, who book computer rental reservations worldwide, report that Pentium 4 desktop computer rentals start at approximately $149 per week in most markets in the United States and Canada. Based upon computer specification, availability and location required, prices can be 20% to 35% lower or higher.

Delivery Location: Office Building or Convention Center

Business address deliveries are generally less expensive than delivering to a convention center. Often business addresses have close-in parking and easy access to the delivery / install area. A convention center complex requires a concerted effort from both the rental company and the company receiving the equipment at the convention center. Often convention center deliveries are more time consuming and costly to deliver, install and pickup afterwards.

Computer Rental Unit Specification

Normally a laptop computer rental consists of an Intel Pentium 4, Computer running Windows XP. Standard RAM is 256 to 512mb, 30gb or larger hard drives. Higher computer specifications cost more to rent. For example: if you require advanced graphic cards, more ram, a different operating system or software installed, computer rental rates will increase.

Be sure to include your computer specification, delivery location and date/time:

Technology Rental Equipment is a Commodity subject to Market Forces

Supply can be affected by the number of competitors and total computer rental units (known as a rental pool) in a given market area. Having a Tech Travel Agent book your technology rental needs means you will always get the equipment you need. You are not dependent on one single equipment vendor. Tech Travel Agents obtain equipment via large technology pools from multiple sources across the US, Canada and Europe.
