Should you get a computer upgrade or junk it and buy a new one? If upgrading your old computer costs roughly half as much as buying a new one then perhaps you should invest the money in a new system.

What if your computer isn’t working well? Will a computer upgrade be worthwhile? Sometimes this could spell disaster. Upgrading a broken computer will do just that. You will have an upgraded broken computer or a very slow computer.

If your computer is in good shape and is just running slow, then a computer upgrade might be just what is needed. It could add a couple of years to your computer’s lifespan.

Magic Lynx Computer Services can assess your computer and let you know if you should upgrade and if so, what upgrades will be best for your computer.

Different Types of Upgrades

  • Memory
  • Wireless Modem
  • Hard Drives
  • CD-ROM Drives and DVD Writers
  • Wireless Keyboard and Mouse

Memory – adding more RAM memory can help optimize the performance of your computer. 512 Mb is the minimum required for Windows XP running SP2 updates. We recommend 1 Gig minimum for a more reasonable speed.

Wireless Modem – Changing to a wireless G system with speed enhancement can increase the speed of the modem and make internet use quicker.

Hard Drives – Many older computers have small hard drives and can’t fit the newest software programs. By adding a newer and faster drive, you will increase the disk storage space and the speed of the computer.

CD-ROM Drives and DVD Writers – Transferring large files from your hard drive to CD-ROM and/or a DVD writable will free up hard drive space and increase the speed. More information on CD ROM drives.

Wireless Keyboard and Mouse – By changing over to a wireless keyboard and mouse, you’ll be able to bring the keyboard over to a nearby table all without being confined by wires.
