The 5 Minute Upgrade

Make a slow computer fast with a simple memory upgrade

Slow computers drain your time and patience. When spinning hourglasses and unresponsive apps cripple your computer (and your productivity), your hands spend more time covering your face in frustration than using your keyboard or mouse. Stop waiting! In a matter of minutes, you can make a slow computer fast by simply installing more memory.

You don't need computer skills to install memory

We know that opening your computer to install memory may seem intimidating, but it's not! Whether it takes you 5 or 15 minutes, it doesn't take long to physically install memory because it doesn't require computer skills. To put it simply, if you can operate a screwdriver, you can install your own memory. One of the great misconceptions about installing computer memory is that it's only for experts — that's false, as are some other myths:

Survey says: Memory really is quick and easy

In a recent survey, 64% of general memory upgraders were able to perform the task in 15 minutes or less, and 24% were able to get it done in less than 5 minutes.* In the same survey, 92% of people who installed memory said they would recommend it to a friend. We think you will too!

Memory: A short-term investment that yields long-term rewards

Take back the time your computer is costing you by quickly and easily installing more memory instead of buying a new computer. Installing more memory regains the hours a slow computer squanders, creating more time for you to be productive or have more fun. A memory upgrade is also less expensive than a new computer. Invest a few minutes now and reap the long-term performance reward.
