How many times do we have to tell you that installing a new high-quality SSD drive in your old laptop will make it feel like a brand new machine before you’ll finally listen? If the hassle of installing your new drive is what’s preventing you from pulling the trigger, do some Googling and you’ll learn that it’s really not that difficult at all. On the other hand, if it’s the price that’s giving you pause, get ready to upgrade: Amazon is currently selling a huge 240GB SSD drive from Kingston Digital for just $69.99 with free express shipping. That’s 81% off the drive’s list price, and it’s a deal you shouldn’t pass up.

Here are the key bullet points:

  • Faster–improves speed of loading applications and system boot up
  • Reliable–with no moving parts, solid-state drives are less likely to fail than traditional hard drives
  • Economical–design is optimized to make migrating to an SSD more affordable
  • Convenient–all-in-one kits are available with all the components needed for a fast and easy installation
  • Multiple capacities–up to 240GB, to fit your workload
  • Silent–runs silent and cool
