Solid state hard drives (SSDs) are a newer type of hard drive which use flash memory instead of a spinning platter to store information. With no moving parts and very fast read and write times, they use less power and break less frequently than regular hard drives do. Though still somewhat more expensive than mechanical hard drives, the price of SSDs dropped dramatically in 2019 and now is a very good time to upgrade to an SSD.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a new solid state drive from Amazon.com. Then contact us for expert installation when it arrives. In most cases, it is pretty straightforward for us to clone (copy) your existing Windows installation, programs, iTunes, pictures, and all onto your new drive in a short amount of time and this will be the best upgrade you have ever done to speed up your computer. Your bank account will thank you, too!
You really can't go wrong with either of these hard drives or pretty much any other SSD you find and you'll be blown away by the performance increase you experience. Our fee for installing the hard drive and cloning your existing hard drive will typically not exceed $100 unless we need to reinstall Windows and transfer your data manually.
If you are worried about still running Windows 7 after support has ended, you are in good company. In the first week in January 2020, more than 200 million computers around the world (that's about 26%) were still running Windows 7, many of whom are undoubtedly still running it now that Windows 7 reached it's official end-of-support on January 14. What that means is that Microsoft will no longer release updates to the operating system and will not patch security vulnerabilities that are discovered from this point forward.
