How to Resurrect a Sluggish Computer

Unless you’re a computer, old age comes slowly. Then it appears to happen all of a sudden. You’re checking in routinely one day and jumping right into the action the next, but booting up takes so long the next day that you haven’t even had time to brew a cup of coffee, let alone rush out to a nearby takeaway!

Many folks will throw their hands in the air and begin longing for a new computer at this point. Except that your computer isn’t broken or in need of repair; it’s just…slow. Time-consuming, distracting, and excruciatingly slow.
Computers, like any other machine, have parts that wear down with time, especially if they have moving elements that are used frequently.
In most computers, the hard disk is the primary source of speed bottlenecks. Traditional hard drives, like classic vinyl record players, are made up of a stack of spherical magnetic platters that spin extremely rapidly while a read/write head on a mechanical arm retrieves the data.
The principles of physics are unbreakable! Data becomes dispersed over the platters over time, requiring hard drives to work extra hard to locate the correct files and assemble small parts into a complete file.

Solid-State Drives (SSDs) can give old computers a new lease on life.

Solid State Drives, which feature no moving parts, have ushering in a new era of hard drives. Zero! They’re similar to your USB stick, which endures a hammering but continues to work flawlessly.
Changing to a solid-state drive (SSD) can make practically any computer feel like new again. You will also receive the following advantages:
  1. Cool — They don’t generate heat, so other components can run more efficiently as well.
  2. There are no moving parts to wear out, thus it’s a long-lasting product.
  3. Compact – around the size and thickness of a credit card.
  4. Longevity — You’re more likely to have to replace your entire system before the SSD fails.
  5. Data is available in a matter of seconds.
  6. Longer battery life thanks to energy efficiency
  7. All platforms are supported, including laptops, desktops, and even netbooks.
