SanDisk is launching their new concierge service today, and it might be just the ticket for anyone who has ever looked at the back of their laptop… eying the screws, thinking NOPE.

You — yes you — can upgrade your limping along, aging laptop with a new SSD. Doing so will improve your laptop’s performance, boost its memory (if you go larger than your current hard drive, of course), and you can do it for less than the cost of replacing your laptop with the current model sporting an SSD! Don’t believe me? Check this out: you can pick up a SanDisk Extreme PRO 960GB SATA 6.0GB/s 2.5-Inch 7mm Height Solid State Drive (SSD) with 10-Year Warranty on Amazon for just $409!

Why would you want to replace your hard drive with an SSD? “SSDs outpace traditional hard-disk drives (HDDs) in every performance category. In addition, SSDs run cooler, create less noise, and use less power, which helps extend laptop battery life, and reduce the strain on limited system resources.”

How does SanDisk Concierge work?

Through the SanDisk SSD Concierge Service, consumers will have all of the tools required to upgrade their laptop successfully. This includes the hardware and software necessary to migrate data as well as install the new SSD3. Once data has been successfully migrated, consumers will have the ability to schedule a video conference via mobile device with a SanDisk technician, who will walk them through the final steps of removing the existing storage device and installing their new SSD. The SanDisk SSD Concierge Service will support all SanDisk consumer SSDs.

How can you get started? Check out the new SanDisk Concierge site.

The gist is that you’ll buy the SSD that you want to replace your hard drive with, and then the concierge service will “include all tools necessary for an upgrade, including transfer wires and video conferencing so a technician can help ensure proper installation.”

Nervous? Don’t be.

The SanDisk SSD Concierge Service is available starting today through Amazon and TigerDirect for $39.99 — plus the cost of whichever SSD you buy.

You can do this, really! And if you do it, we want to hear about it! 🙂
