If your computer has ever come to a crawl you probably didn't have enough memory. A lack of memory is the leading cause of systems becoming unbearably slow. So stock up now when memory is dirt cheap and avoid those expensive upgrades.

M.2 SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional 'spinning disk' drives. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half. The newest of NVME M.2 SSD drives are even faster.

Is one drive not enough? Add a 2nd. Whether you need a system configured with a mix of fast (SSD), reliable (traditional drive), and inexpensive (mixed)- or plain out raided for redundancy to ensure your important data doesn't go bye-bye we got it.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.
