Upgrade to a Solid State Drive
Computers need a place to store and retrieve permanent data, and most computers use a hard drive. In a traditional hard disk drive (HDD), a mechanical arm is used with a read/write head to move around and read data. In a Solid State Drive (SSD) there are no moving parts as data is read from microchips. This means faster computing speed and better overall performance for your computer.
Here is a short video that shows an example of how much faster a Solid State Drive is compared to a Hard Disk Drive. The computer used in the video is a 2011 model. You can expect faster boot times in a more modern computer. Click here if the video does not load.
