A new computer is a significant investment for any business, large or small. Many companies end up using older systems for longer than they would like because they want to get their money’s worth out of the purchase.
Do you find yourself banging on your keyboard in frustration? Have you tried every tip and trick you found online, only to still struggle with a slow PC?
There are some great upgrades you can do that won’t cost as much as a new computer, and they’ll make your PC feel like new again.
UPGRADE TO A SOLID-STATE DRIVE (SSD)
The price of solid-state drives has decreased significantly in recent years, making them a budget-friendly upgrade that can help speed up an older computer.
HDDs have moving parts, while SSDs do not. SSDs use flash memory, which allows for quicker response time. This results in faster boot times and smoother performance when opening files and applications.
Some of the advantages of upgrading your computer’s hard drive to SSD include:
- SSD read/write speeds up to 2500 MB/second compared to HDD at up to 200 MB/second
- SSD access time of 0.1ms as compared to HDD at 5.5-8.0ms
- SSDs use between 2-5 watts of energy compared to HDD at 6-15 watts
INCREASE THE RAM (MEMORY)
One low-cost upgrade that can lead to significant performance gains is a memory upgrade. If your PC only had 4GB of RAM when you bought it, you’re likely to have trouble opening too many tabs in your browser or using any graphics-heavy program.
Adding more RAM to your computer can make a big difference in its speed and performance. If your PC has available memory slots, upgrading to 8GB or 12GB of RAM can make it feel like you have an entirely new computer.
