Research Reveals Percentage of Computer Users Afraid of Computer Memory Upgrades

Research released today by a British firm has revealed some shocking computer habits that could help to explain why you've been delaying upgrading your computer memory.

According to the survey of 1000 computer owners between the ages of 16 and 70 years old, more than half run their antivirus software in order to find a solution to a slow computer problem. Another 39% admitted to being reluctant to go under the cover of their machine and perform a PC memory or Apple memory upgrade. Just under half (49%) were also unaware of how much RAM their computer had and were fearful of damaging the machine if they tried to install components such as memory themselves.

Despite this reluctance to use available hardware to improve machine performance, the majority of computer owners wait five years on average before buying a new machine the survey reports. Potentially, this means a large proportion of those using PCs or Apples struggle with a machine that is not fast enough to be used enjoyably for years before deciding to upgrade to a newer model.

Data Memory Systems the PC and Apple memory specialists are surprised by these statistics. They point out how easy it to perform a DIY memory upgrade. Justin Briere, Senior Account Manager at the Salem, New Hampshire firm says, "Upgrading a computer's memory capacity is actually a lot easier than it sounds. I think many are put off thinking you need to be very technology and computer savvy to do something so complicated but it really is a case of choosing the right chip and then following a series of basic instructions. Installing a new PC memory chip can take less than 30 mins to complete.

"While it's true that there are hundreds of possible brands and sizes of memory available, we have made it easy to buy the right one with an exhaustive list of PC models and their compatible memory upgrades. Simply select your machine from a list and our interface will sort available products into suitable components."

One of the most surprising aspects of the research is perhaps the willingness of users to suffer with a sub-par performance for years before finally giving in and buying a newer model. Upgrading an existing computer or Mac's memory size can make an immediate difference and with PC memory prices starting from under $20 it's a much more economical way to improve day to day computing.

Mr Briere added, "We would encourage any computer user not to be afraid of upgrading their machine. It's much cheaper to add a new memory chip than buy a whole new desktop or laptop and it's a very straightforward procedure to accomplish."
