Upgrading your computer

Upgrading is an excellent way to improve computer performance and increase lifespan. We assess the computer before recommending options and associated costs.

Solid State disk upgrades are popular and offer incredible performance benefits, often doubling the life of a good computer. A relatively quick upgrade, it can easily be done within a working day – actual upgrade only takes around 1.5 hours. We like to bench test the computer for a few hours after to ensure 100% stability.
