Old age creeps up slowly – unless you’re a computer…

Then it seems to happen overnight. One day you’re logging in normally and jumping right into the action, the next day booting up takes so long you not only have time to make a cup of coffee yourself, you could have run out to the local café for your favourite cuppa!

This is the stage where many people throw their hands in the air and start wishing for a new computer. Except your computer isn’t broken and doesn’t need replacing, it’s just….slow. Time-wasting, focus-losing, frustratingly slow. Like any machine, computers have parts that wear out – particularly if they have moving parts that are in near-constant use.

The hard drive is the #1 cause of speed bottlenecks in most computers. Traditional hard drives are made up of a stack of round magnetic platters, spinning at up to 7200rpms, while a data reader on a mechanical arm whizzes back and forth. Eventually, the platters take longer to spin up, unable to reach full throttle, and the mechanical arm becomes sluggish. Which leaves you waiting. And waiting…


SSD’s Can Give Aging Computers A New Lease on Life.

The new era of drive storage is here with “Solid State Drives” or SSDs for short – and they have no moving parts. Zero.

They’re actually a lot like your USB stick that continually takes a beating but still performs perfectly.

An upgrade to SSD can knock minutes (an eternity) off your boot up time, as well streamline regular computer operations with rapid fire functionality. They’re all of these things:

Cool – Don’t generate heat, which means other components also run more efficiently

Durable – No moving parts to wear out

Compact – A little larger and thicker than a credit card

Long-lasting – You’re actually more likely to replace your entire system before the SSD wears out

Lightning fast – Data is accessed instantly

Suitable for all systems– laptop, desktop and even netbook

Upgrading your tired hard drive to a super-fast SSD can be done within one day. For approx. $250, we will supply and install a fast 250GB SSD for you, as well as clone your existing hard drive to it (Windows, programs and data). A full 12 month parts and labour warranty is included. Or if you would like a new SSD with a fresh Windows installation (optimum speed boost), we can do this too.
