E9-11 Twyla Enterprises uses a word processing computer to handle its sales invoices. Lately, business has been so good that it takes an extra 3 hours per night, plus every third Saturday, to keep up with the volume of sales invoices. Management is considering updating its computer with a faster model that would eliminate all of the overtime processing.



Current Machine New Machine

Original purchase cost $15,000 $25,000

Accumulated depreciation $6,000 ---------

Estimated operating costs $24,000 $18,000

Useful life 5 years 5 years



If sold now, the current machine would have a salvage value of $5,000. If operated for the remainder of its useful life, the current machine would have zero salvage value. The new machine is expected to have zero salvage after five years.

Should the current machine be replaced?
