Today’s Tech Tip:

If you want to make a noticeable difference in the speed of your computers and the people that use them I can help.

One very effective way to improve your computer’s speed is to replace your computer’s slow mechanical drive with a solid state drive (SSD) that works up to 10x faster.

Starting a computer that used to take 2 minutes, now takes 15-20 seconds because all programs, including the operating system, load from storage that much faster. Because file operations of any kind move faster, all of this makes your PC work faster and become less frustrating to use.

Replacing an older PC’s (3 years or older) mechanical disk drive will increase the potential lifespan of the computer as well because you replace an older mechanical device that was at the end of it’s reliable life span with a solid state device with another 3-6 years of life.  So not only does an SSD speed up the older computer, it also helps it to be productive and reliable for a longer period of time.  

By increasing a PC’s useful lifespan you also reduce your overall technology expenses over time.  Even the accounting department thinks getting SSD’s for older computers is a good idea.  🙂

Speaking of the accounting department, SSD’s used to be quite expensive and reserved only for high-end video editing and graphics intensive workstations.  Due to the popularity of tablets and smart phones, which also use solid state memory for data storage, the cost of SSD’s for PC’s has come down to what I consider reasonable levels.
