Puget Systems Capability and Supply Update

Written on September 8, 2021 by Jon Bach

Back in March 2020, I shared a blog post similar to many other companies at the time, that talked about the impacts of COVID-19 on our business. It feels like a lifetime has passed since then! It is time to give another update on what we're seeing in the technology industry, and what we are doing in response.

State of the CPU

Written on July 21, 2021 by William George

Earlier this year I wrote about AMD's comeback, as their processors were being included in more than half of the workstations we sold. It has been a few months now, marked by a lot of hardware shortages in this industry, so I wanted to revisit the situation and look at some additional metrics regarding CPU sales here at Puget Systems.

How We Handle Peripherals Is Changing

Written on March 9, 2021 by William George

Since our founding, more than twenty years ago, Puget Systems has offered a small selection of keyboards, mice, and other accessories for purchase and use with our computers. The exact categories and models we have carried changed over time, of course, but it was always just an assumed part of our business - after all, people need input devices, displays, backup drives, etc. But what if that isn't actually the best approach for our customers?

AMD - Return of the King?

Written on March 9, 2021 by William George

Back in 2015, we quietly dropped AMD processor options from our workstations. At the time, I wrote a post explaining what had happened, and ended it with a hope that AMD would come back someday with a more competitive CPU. That did, in fact, happen - and over the last couple of years we have seen them surge back into our product line with a vengeance!

A New Normal

Written on May 6, 2020 by Geno Rosario

Quarantine life has hit all of us pretty drastically. At first, it was a bit of a shock to realize that businesses were even thinking about shutting down. “Is this real?” “There’s no way the virus could be that deadly, right?”

Written on April 10, 2020 by Oscar Tirado

Like most of my colleagues, working from home isn’t foreign to me. I have been working remotely for 1-2 days out of the week for the past ~4 years. I never really thought much of it aside from it being more of a self-paced workday.

Adjusting to Working from Home - Eric in Marketing

Written on April 6, 2020 by Eric Brown

With Washington state under the new "Stay Home, Stay Safe" proclamation, I have now been working out of my home office for about 4 weeks. And just the other day, this order was extended another 30 days. So we're in this for the long haul. In the spirit of helping those who are either working from home for the first time, or simply not used to doing so full time, I thought I would share my setup, how I've adjusted, and what I've learned along the way.
