System running too slow? Not enough hard drive storage space? Considering a new computer?

Often times, all you need is an upgrade. So, how do you know when it is time to upgrade or buy new?

Performance upgrades are not recommended for computers running Windows XP. Microsoft no longer supports this software. You are advised to replace the computer.

Windows Vista systems will benefit from a RAM upgrade, but due to the age of the units that contain Windows Vista, the price of a software upgrade to Windows 7 or 8.1 is not cost effective. If you own a Vista system, and it is not performing as fast as before, it is likely caused by software virus/spyware infections. You may want to consider a system software tuneup instead of a hardware upgrade.

If your Windows Operating Software version is Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 AND the computer has less than 4 GB of RAM and/or a hard drive that is less than 500 MB, you will benefit from an upgrade.

• RAM UPGRADE: This is the least expensive option to improve overall computer performance on ANY computer. RAM upgrades typically cost between $35 to $55 and we will install it for FREE.

• HARD DRIVE UPGRADE: For many computer users, a 500 GB hard drive is sufficient. But if you like to store large amounts of photos, music, videos and data for immediate access you definitely need a larger hard drive. Hard drive prices range from $55 to $75 for a 1TB drive – double the storage for a very reasonable cost. Labor to install and “drive copy” your information to the new drive is $65.
