When your computer starts to run a little slow, many of you assume that means it's time to get a new computer.
If your computer is really old maybe, but there's an inexpensive way to get it running like it’s new again.
It is known as a Hybrid harddrive and it is one of the "best kept secrets" in the computer world.
There are 3 major internal components that have a dramatic impact on how fast your computer will run: your processor, RAM and harddrive.
The hard drive turns out to be the biggest bottleneck and improving this bottleneck will have a huge impact on performance.
And best of all, it's a lot less expensive than buying a new computer.
Hybrid hard drives make use of a super fast solid state memory circuit combined with an old-school magnetic drive and keep the files you use most on the much faster partition.
If you upgrade, you can use the old hard drive as a backup drive by putting it into an external enclosure.
So, before you spend a ton of money replacing an old computer, check to see if a hybrid-hard drive can save you money and pep up your system at the same time!
