There is nothing more frustrating than a slow computer. Rather than buying a new desktop or laptop, why not install a Solid State Drive (SSD) card.
What is an SSD?
An SSD is similar to USB memory sticks, but more of an oversized and more sophisticated version. Like a USB memory stick, there are no moving parts to an SSD. The information is therefore stored in microchips. Which means that an SSD, rather than a hard disk drive, is so much faster.
A typical SSD uses what is called NAND-based flash memory, that is, when you turn off the disk it won’t forget what was stored on it. Which is an essential characteristic to any permanent memory.
The SSD is actually the same size as a regular hard drive and comes in a standard 1.8″, 2.5″ or 3.5″ size that can fit into the housing and connectors for the same-sized hard drives.
What this upgrade means for your computer?
By completing this upgrade you should expect to see from the first reboot that your start ups will be a lot faster. Programs and files will launch or load faster, and your search results will arrive a lot faster for you. You may also notice that your laptop will run overall a lot quieter as a SSD doesn’t contain moving parts.
In the long run an SSD card also uses less electrical power than what a conventional hard drive would. This means longer battery life for laptop users.
SSD’s are well on their way to becoming the mainstream, standard storage mechanism, especially for laptops. So if you desire top computing performance, opting for an SSD inside your computer set up or an upgrade, don’t hesitate to contact us here at ImagineNow IT.
