Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Are you on a tight budget but need a faster computer? Here's a short set of tips that guarantee a super-fast computer (more than 10 times your current experience).
Windows is not as slow as you think, in fact; Windows is amazingly fast and supports older hardware so well. So here are your upgrade choices:
1. Get a Solid state harddrive (SSD), in my experience; to save money get a 60 - 120gB SSD from Amazon, ebay, newegg etc; keep your heavy files on an external drives; stuff you access once in a while. An SSD will make your PC like 10 to 15 times normal speeds!
2. Add some extra RAM if you can, 4GB RAM modules are affordable these days, double on what you have.
You will be amazed at the speed of your 'old' PC!! This in fact is why MACs appear faster; they all come with the SSD drives and embedded chips.
