Doing More With Less With SSD
Doing more with less and getting the biggest bang for your buck. Everyone knows that refurbished computers cost less than new. You can typically buy two refurbished units for every new computer. So if you are looking to increase the volume of devices at your school, refurbished is definitely an option.
If you are also looking for performance. Compugen has the solution. Upgrade the components. Compugen Education for the past few years has been upgrading our refurbished products with more RAM and switched the standard hard drives (HDD) to solid state drives (SSD).
This Accomplishes a few things:
Speed. An SSD has access speeds of 35-100 micro seconds which is nearly 100 times faster than a standard drive. Which means it can load programs more quickly. No more waiting for your computer to turn on.
Reliability. The SSD drive has no moving parts. It uses flash memory to store data, which provides better performance and reliability over an HDD.
Power. The SSD uses less power than a standard HDD, which means it uses less energy and for laptops means it will increase the battery life. Who doesn’t want longer run times?
Noise. With no moving parts SSD generates no noise – good news for the classroom.
Heat. Because there are no moving parts the SSD generate less heat which helps increase the lifespan and the reliability of the device.
The second half of the puzzle is memory upgrades. Most computers have 4GB RAM the next logical step is moving to 8GB RAM. But does memory really increase a computers performance? Yes and No. The main benefit of more memory is better multitasking or running more programs at once. Where is this benefit seen the most? Browsing the internet. With more memory you will see an increase in web pages loading and flash content opening faster.
Now bundle all that with longer warranties than you would get on a new unit. (Link -Compugen Honor Roll Certification program) We can offer anywhere from 1, 2, 3, 5 year or even a lifetime warranty to match your needs and budget.
