Absolutely blown away - it's like a different machine!
About a year ago my partner bought me a second hand 2017 iMac for my birthday. As I got into using it it gradually became apparent that something wasn't right with it, but I said nothing because I didn't want to seem ungrateful. Eventually it became impossible to keep it quiet when she watched me boot up Photoshop and wait the four or so minutes that it took to open. Report abuse
Eventually I couldn't stand it anymore and took it into Mark at Console Wizard to have it's hard drive replaced with an SSD. During the cloning process Mark got to experience first hand the kind of frustration I'd been dealing with for a year, when the process took almost a full day and night to complete - normally it would be done in a few hours.
We let it complete overnight and I picked it up today - and all I can say is WOW, this is now an absolute pleasure to use instead of a teeth-pulling grind. The machine boots up in 15 seconds instead of three minutes... and Adobe programs open in around 5 seconds as opposed to 5 minutes!!!
I'd read all of the advice saying that an SSD upgrade was the way to go, and now I'm an absolute evangelist - if you;re sitting on the fence about whether this is the right choice for you, give CW a call today and ask them about an upgrade. It's absolutely changed my working life.
