Easily and affordably improve your school’s computers

Increase student and teacher performance with memory and SSDs

Shrinking education budgets make it a challenge to deliver the computer speed and reliability that students and teachers need to succeed. Overcome these limitations with Crucial® memory (RAM) and SSDs – an easy and affordable way to improve the performance of your school’s existing systems. Instead of spending money on expensive new computers, you can instantly increase system speed, save money, and get more years out of current computers with Crucial memory and SSDs.

Make technology a strength at your school

Classrooms now rely on technology more than ever before, which is why it’s critical to ensure those systems run smoothly and securely. Waiting on slow computers wastes valuable class time and causes students to lose the focus that teachers work so hard to achieve. Here’s how more memory and SSDs improve student and teacher performance.

7 ways schools benefit from more memory and SSDs


Maximize class time and keep students engaged
Near-instant boot times, improved system responsiveness, and seamless multitasking maximize limited class time and help students use technology more efficiently, work 6x faster, and maintain their attention.


Boost online classes, virtual classes, and educational apps
The classroom is changing. As more schoolwork gets done online, computers and servers need more RAM and SSDs to power the digital classroom, not bog it down.


Better withstand the punishment of everyday classroom use
SSDs are inherently more durable than hard drives because they don’t use small mechanical moving parts to read data. Translation: Computers that often get thrown around by students are less likely to fail.


Use more intensive apps or programs
Many media and design apps that are now used in schools, such as Adobe® Photoshop® for graphic design and Adobe® Premiere® Pro for video editing, require large amounts of system resources. Using them in the classroom improves real-world application and better prepares students who are entering the workforce.


Improve student and teacher performance without draining your IT budget
Installing more memory and SSDs instantly speeds up computers that are used for almost everything in modern education – and doubling a system’s memory from 4GB to 8GB and adding a 275GB SSD often costs 75% less than buying a new system.* Hardware is a long-term investment that you can likely also use in future systems.


Avoid lengthy downtime upgrading your systems
Memory and SSD installation is quick and easy, so your system upgrade won’t require significant downtime – plus, to maximize the learning value of an upgrade, you can teach students in computer science courses how to install memory and SSDs – a valuable skill.


Ensure compatibility with your systems
PCs, Mac® systems, and servers can all benefit from more memory and better storage. Ensure compatibility in just a few clicks with the System Scanner or Crucial® Advisor tool, which guarantee compatibility when you order on
