Recently, a lot of our customers have been asking whether it is possible to ‘clean’ or ‘refurbish’ a laptop or computer on a budget. Of course, there are cleans, fixes and optimizations that can be made that sometimes help a machine that is slow, or a machine that has popups or other infections, but really the only way to improve a machine in the long term is by upgrading it’s components.
For the tech-savvy readers, this may seem like an obvious solution, for example upgrading the RAM allows the computer to do more things at once, but what about other improvements that are less well known?
One of the best and cheapest upgrades is upgrading the hard drive in your computer from it’s current (slow and bulky) hard disk drive to a super quick and secure solid state hard drive. Upgrading to an SSD is one of the best upgrades you can make, because traditional hard disk drives are a huge bottleneck, slowing and hindering the computers capable performance.
Upgrading your hard drive may seem daunting and time consuming, but if you book your machine in with us to upgrade, we can complete the work in 1 working day. Prices range depending on the side of hard drive you need, and we can advise on the total cost upon inspection, or over the phone.
Other upgrades include new batteries, graphics cards, power supplies, RAM, CPU and cooling, however, the most cost-effective upgrade is a SSD upgrade.
