Memory Upgrades for Laptops and Desktop PCs
Our memory upgrades can be increase performance for very little cost and have near immediate benefits. One of the mistakes we see is that people get fed up with their system, go to a big corporate PC store (*cough*, not mentioning names here) and allow their commission focused salespeople coerce them into buying a newer system. Being a friendly, local bunch of people, we tend to want to save our customers money, and reduce their carbon footprint by simply upgrading their system instead. Upgrading hardware can instantly increase system performance. So, what is memory, or RAM? It helps for you understand what each component of a computer does.
What is Memory?
Memory or Ram is one the most important components within a PC or Laptop. It allows the CPU to process instructions more quickly. This coupled with the speed of the memory will further increase system performance. It enables more applications to be opened at the same time (multitasking), but the faster memory speed allows the overall opening of applications and system boot times to be that much quicker.
f your PC or Laptop is feeling a little sluggish, and it takes a good few minutes to get up and running, then upgrading your memory is certainly advised. The impact on system performance is noted almost instantly and is certainly a recommended step before going out and spending hundreds of pounds on a new computer.
Another upgrade we see is the upgrade of the CPU and Hard Drive to SSD. Upgrading these 3 components at the same time, can eliminate bottle necks in your system.
