Is your computer running a little slow, but you’re not ready to buy a new one? The answer may lay in upgrading your computer.
At Less Stress Computer Services we specialise in PCs, Mac and Laptop Upgrades.
By upgrading your computer, you are increasing the performance of your system. There are several reasons that indicate that an upgrade would be a good investment.
Indicators for upgrading PCs, Macs and Laptops
Laptop battery cells deteriorate over time and they then cannot store power for long periods of time. The current performance of batteries is around five hours so if your battery is not lasting this long then it may be time to replace it before it dies completely.
Your computer cannot run new software versions
The inability to use new software means that you cannot access the best version of the service, or in some cases use the software at all. You need a more modern and powerful system that will be able to run all of your applications.
Improving storage and memory
Most of the old laptops are running on a hard disk drive, HDD. Currently, the newer laptops are running on solid state drive, SSD. The benefit of a solid state drive is that you get faster loads, saving power consumption and boot time.
Now is the time
Technology has advanced so why get left behind when you can upgrade your Mac, PC or laptop today? There is competition among manufacturers and an abundance of information in the form of reviews so you can check out all the product options before buying.
How can I tell if my laptop is upgradable?
When it comes to laptops, your only replaceable and upgradable components are the RAM and storage drive. As mentioned, an SSD will go a long way in giving your device a new lease of life. Instead of replacing your WiFi card consider a USB WiFi dongle.
It is also important to read the service manual to find out what can be upgraded as the manufacturer does know the device best.
Consider the Price
Sometimes a simple upgrade is not suitable as most laptops come with specific components and upgrading with the wrong components could result in reduced performance, caused by overheating, which can eventually destroy the components. Some upgrades are costly, and it would be more beneficial and financially viable to purchase a new laptop. An example of this is when you have a cracked screen. In most cases, the price of replacing a screen is comparable to that of a new laptop.
The best way to be certain is by consulting a professional.
