Is your Computer or Laptop getting a bit long in the tooth? You’ve had it a few years and you’re noticing things aren’t as fast as they used to be. The whole system takes longer to start up, programs are becoming slower to open, documents that used to open in a flash are taking ages to open! Frustrating, isn’t it? The good news is that an upgrade to a Solid State Drive (SSD) could make a big difference.

We have been upgrading lots of Computers and Laptops in the MCC workshop for a while now to SSDs with many customers telling us afterwards that they have noticed a significant increase in speed and overall performance.

What is a solid-state drive?

An SSD is a storage device which can be fitted to your computer to replace the existing mechanical Hard Drive. Unlike a Hard Drive, an SSD has no moving parts. This makes it more resistant to shocks, it runs quieter but what should be most noticable to the user is the increase in the speed of the computer. SSDs also have plenty of capacity for storing all your photos, music, documents, etc. And the good news is that the price of SSDs have fallen dramatically over the years, so it won’t break the bank to have the upgrade carried out.

Of course there can be other reasons for a slow computer; malware, spyware, viruses, software updates needing done and so on. Here at MCC Computers we encourage all our customers to have an annual computer service carried out. Part of this service will check for all of the above but if all this is done and it’s simply down to age and usage, it can be well worthwhile to have the Solid State Drive upgrade carried out.
