Laptop hard drives, on average, last about three years. We recommend replacement of computers after three years. However, if you want to keep your laptop, we highly recommend Solid State Drives (SSDs).
This is the same technology in your smartphone or tablet that lets it boot up and open applications quickly. All Apple laptops now come with SSDs as do many Windows laptops. If we’re going to repair your computer, or you just need a speed boost, an SSD is the way to go.
SSDs give you more of a performance boost than a memory upgrade or any other single procedure we can do during a tune up. The price is reasonable: right around $50-$100 for the parts. Speed increase can be up to 10-fold. That’s a good return on investment. Even if your hard drive hasn’t failed, putting in an SSD is like a fountain of youth for your desktop or laptop.
