 asked on

average time for a workstation install?

I have to say I'm embarrassed to be asking this. what do most of you charge in labor hours to install a W7pro desktop, office 2007,office appplications including data migration.from old compute (vista pro).  plus addition of drivers to support. a high res monitor.  

One of my customers feels that he should pay only 30 minutes labor for his install. A radiology MD who uses PACS software to view MRIs.

It depend on which country you are in.. the best way is you call to your local pc shop and ask them how much they charge if you need them to come over to install win 7 for you.. then you will know the std price..

OnsiteSupport,
In terms of number of hours, I have nothing to add to the comments posted, which, for the most part, are spot-on, imo. But as an onsite support consultant, you may find this article interesting:
