When your PC’s performance winds down to a slow crawl it’s tempting to toss your old hardware for a shiny new tablet or laptop, especially with the latest solid-state drive technology to run circles around your old hard drive’s speed, but that can be quite expensive. There are more cost-effective ways to achieve like-new PC speeds, and in some cases, even better speed than an SSD can provide.
“If a once-fast computer has slowed to a crawl, you can’t really blame the hardware. Sure, you may be able to improve speed by adding RAM, upgrading the CPU, or replacing the hard drive with an SSD. But none of those solutions–all of which cost money–address the underlying problem. Your hardware isn’t underpowered. It’s overloaded.”
