How I Increased Productivity With A System Upgrade

This past winter I upgraded my computer equipment and I can’t believe the difference it has made in my productivity. I’ve optimized the shit out of my time spent online and now I can get A LOT more done in a fraction of the time.

System Speed

The first thing I ignored for a long time was the speed of my system. I use Photoshop on a daily basis along with Dreamweaver and my FTP client is almost always running. I realized these programs ate resources, but until I upgraded to 16GB of RAM and Solid State Drives, I had no idea what I was missing. I can load these programs in seconds and there is never a lag when I’m getting my development work completed.

Multiple Devices

Originally I had only upgraded my office desktop. I took a Mac Mini, added 2x8GB of RAM and put 2x500GB SSD with RAID 0 and display everything on 2×27″ Thunderbolt displays. Damn it’s slick!

Soon after upgrading I realized that when I went home for the evening, and left the office, I was stuck with my old, slow Macbook Pro. Therefore I decided to upgrade that as well!

    Doing just a tiny bit of upgrading, and cutting back on programs can help tremendously. The system speed thing is key. I used to have Skype running in the background; what a heavy program! Now I check it once or twice daily and close it out, run frequent disk defrags and clear my cache every week or so to keep things running smoothly.

    Good Kingg!

    This is just about helpful for all bloggers as well. There is nothing more frustrating than slow system. With the right and timely upgrade, productivity is sure to increase.

      Yes sir Sunday. The frustration element can be overwhelming, for members or organizations, or visitors to sites who are outside of the business setting. The cool part is usually it’s some type of release which improves system performance; not so much adding, but letting go, and we can let go at any time.

      Thanks for chatting!
