Upgrade to a Solid State Drive
Computers need a place to store and retrieve permanent data. In a 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. No moving parts 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.
