It’s time to upgrade to an SSD if you’re still using a mechanical hard drive in your computer. An SSD is the single biggest upgrade you can give your computer! Solid state drives are so much faster because they don’t have a spinning magnetic platter and moving head. After upgrading, you’ll be amazed at the performance improvements and wondering why you waited so long.
Typically, solid state drives perform up to 10 times faster than traditional hard drives so your computer will boot much quicker, open programs instantly and will feel like an expensive brand new computer for a fraction of the cost! Added bonus – SSDs are much more reliable, consumer less energy and generate less heat – important for those who have laptops!
Your computer becomes much, much faster to boot. How much of an improvement depends on your operating system, hardware, and what software is loading at boot — but you can make it down to 10-20 seconds, even on an older Windows 7 system. Your desktop will load much more quickly after you log in too. Even if you have a lot of nasty bloatware running at boot, your desktop will become usable much more quickly.
Launching a program, opening a file, and saving something to disk will all happen much, much faster. Click a program, and it can load almost instantly. All those little moments of waiting you don’t notice when you use your computer are adding up. Even just browsing the web will be faster — with your browser’s cache files stored on an SSD, they’ll load almost instantly instead of more slowly from a mechanical drive.
If you have a laptop or desktop less than 5 years old, get it upgraded and you’ll be amazed at the difference it makes! Might not need a new computer after all. Our upgrade service includes a brand new solid state drive (120GB or more if necessary) and you can choose between two options:
1. Copy your existing setup and leave everything as is. Perfect when your computer is running just slow and doesn’t have major issues. It will work exactly the same way as before but much faster! This will cost you $300.
2. We can do a fresh install of Windows, including all drivers, updates, and useful software. After that, we transfer your data back to the “new” system. Only your pictures, documents, emails, and other important files will be copied. This will result in a faster and more reliable computer but it won’t look and work exactly the same as before – which is probably a good thing anyway! This will cost $350. Extra if you have special requirements, programs to reinstall, or need a bigger drive.
