‘Time is money’ & Slow computers are horrible

You know what they say ‘Time is money’ and slow computers are horrible things to use, so have you switched your computer/laptop to run an SSD yet?

An SSD basically replaces the hard drive (the C:\ drive for most people) with what is similar to a memory card that you put into your camera (i.e. no moving parts) but one that is on loads of steroids, has it’s own ‘brain’ and some short term memory added on.

It will make your computer turn on/boot super quick, apps will open like they’re only minimised & you will see a lot less loading/egg timers smile emoticon

Here are the ones we would get:

► Samsung EVO 250GB
Best bang for your buck in our opinion. 3 year warranty

► SanDisk 240GB
Cheaper not as reliable as the EVO but 3 year warranty

► What we use
5 year warranty

These articles should help you install one and remember it might/will void your computers warranty so only do if you’re confident or don’t want the warranty, failing that find your nearest friendly neighbourhood geek and they will help you install it. Cookies/Doughnuts/Pizza are great currency for any geek wink emoticon

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
