Old age creeps up – even if you’re a computer. Eventually, booting up takes so long you not only have time to make a cup of coffee, you could have run out to the local café for the good stuff.
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, such as hard drives.
The hard drive is the #1 cause of speed bottlenecks in most computers. Traditional hard drives are made up of a stack of round magnetic platters, spinning at up to 7200rpm, while read/write heads on mechanical arms whizz back and forth.
Eventually, the platters take longer to spin up, unable to reach full throttle, and the mechanical arm becomes sluggish. Which leaves you waiting. And waiting…
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. 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 knock minutes (an eternity) off boot time, as well as streamlining regular computer operations. Some of the benefits are that they’re: –
• 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 – buy a good quality SSD drive and it will last
• Lightning fast – Data is accessed almost instantly
• Suitable for all systems– laptop, desktop and even netbook
Upgrading your tired hard drive to a super-fast SSD can be done within one day.
We can supply and install an SSD for you, 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 instead.
Book your SSD upgrade today (someone else can watch the kettle boil tomorrow).
