“Employees spend up to 11 hrs. per year just waiting for their computer to boot up” is based on a 2018 web-based survey, commissioned by Intel, and conducted by J.Gold Associates, LLC., of 3297 respondents from small business in 16 countries (Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, UAE, UK, USA), to assess the challenges and costs associated with deploying older PCs. Assuming one start-up per day and using an average start-up time that was calculated by taking the midpoint of the time survey respondents estimated it takes to start up a PC that is more than 5 years old, employees were estimated to spend up to 11 hours a year starting up a 5 year old PC (4.07 minutes start-up x 1 start-up per work day x 5 days a week x 52 weeks a year / 60 (to get hours) x utilization rate of .67 = 11.8 hours per year).
