Hardware Upgrades

Let's face it, even the best computers can become slow with age. That once shiny new iMac now takes minutes to boot up and even longer to load iTunes. In some cases, there might not even be enough storage left for iTunes to be on the computer. Whatever the reason behind it, I've got your back. If you're looking for a speed boost, more storage, or more expandability, look no further. With hard drive upgrades up to 8.0 TB for most desktops and 2.0 TB for most laptops, as well as ram options up to 32 GB, your computer will be running like new in no time! There is a reasons this is my most popular service, as it can save thousands over upgrading to a new computer. All storage upgrade prices factor in full data transfer and configuration of backup drive if necessary.
