Old age creeps up slowly – unless you’re a computer.
Then it seems to happen overnight. One day you’re logging in normally and jumping right into the action, the next day booting up takes so long you not only have time to make a cup of coffee, you could have run out to a local takeaway!
This is the stage where many people throw their hands in the air and start wishing for a new computer. Except your computer isn’t broken and doesn’t need replacing, it’s just….slow. Time-wasting, focus-losing, frustratingly slow.
Like any machine, computers have parts that wear out – particularly if they have moving parts that are in near-constant use.
The hard drive is the #1 cause of speed bottlenecks in most computers. Similar to old vinyl record players, traditional hard drives are made up of a stack of round magnetic platters, spinning really fast, while a read/write head on a mechanical arm goes back and forth to retrieve the data.
You can't break the laws of physics! Overtime, data becomes scattered all over the platters and hard drives have to work extra hard to get the right files and assemble little pieces into the whole file.
SSD's Can Give Aging Computers A New Lease On Life
The new era of hard drives is here with Solid State Drives – and they have no moving parts. Zero! They’re actually a lot like your USB stick that continually takes a beating but still performs perfectly.
Making a simple upgrade to SSD can make almost any computer feel like it's brand new again. You also get the following benefits:
- Cool – Don’t generate heat, which means other components also run more efficiently
- Durable – No moving parts to wear out
- Compact - A little larger and thicker than a credit card
- Long-lasting – You’re actually more likely to replace your entire system before the SSD wears out
- Lightning fast – Data is accessed instantly
- Energy efficient - longer battery life
- Suitable for all systems– laptops, desktops and even netbooks
Upgrading your tired hard drive to a super-fast SSD can be done within one day.
For only $300, we will upgrade your laptop or desktop with a 120 GB SSD, as well as clone your existing hard drive to it (Windows, programs and data). A full 12 month parts and labour warranty is included.
Or if you would like a new SSD with a fresh Windows installation (optimum speed boost), we can do that as well! We will then copy your data and reinstall the most common programs. This will cost you $350.
