Internal Clean

Clogged up fans are the main cause of an over-heating computer. Over-heating laptops lead to all sorts of problems down the line. As they are quite literally dust-magnets, it is a good idea to have your computer cleaned regularly.

Hardware Upgrade

There is nothing more frustrating than a computer that just won't do what you want it to do when you tell it to do it. If you want to give your computer a major boost in speed, thankfully there are options. You will never, ever regret upgrading to an SSD.
