Should I update or replace my computer hardware to speed it up?

Updating computer hardware can help with speed, but ultimately replacing the hardware might tend to produce better results. Consider upgrading your RAM and/or replacing an old hard drive with a solid state drive if you want to increase your computer’s speed. Additionally, ensure your operating system is up-to-date and that you have adequate antivirus protection. If your computer is several years old, you might also consider replacing it with a newer model.
