Best Laptop Upgrade

Posted in Site Updates - Written by Grant Philipps on April 4, 2013

Untitled-1Laptop running at a snail’s pace? More than likely its software related or the internal Hard Disk Drive is degrading causing very poor read and write times. Good News, Seagate have just released a brand new 2.5″ Drive which incorporated a SSD (Solid State Drive) and conventional HDD (Hard Disk Drive) into one.

These come in two sizes:

8GB SSD + 500GB HDD $165

8GB SSD + 1TB HDD (1000GB) $210

I hear you ask what are the benefits? Well SSD’s is memory storage, have you ever opened an application which took say 10seconds to load, closed it and then reopened right away for it only to take less than 2 seconds to load? This is because your computer will put the application into memory and store it there for fast retrieval. So having your Operating System on an SSD makes good sense because everything will load noticeably quicker.
