Of those who have a computer, more than half (53%) said they would like their computer programs to run faster, while 43% said that faster start-up would be one of their top New Year’s resolution for their computer in 2013.

Furthermore, 36% of those who have a computer said they would like to improve reliability (e.g., fewer crashes or freezes) of their computer in the coming year, a sign that American consumers' computers may not be operating with enough internal memory.

“New Year's has always been a time to reflect on many of the life changes we want to make in the coming year. And, since most resolutions focus on improving health, relationships, careers, and eliminating the things that cause life stress, we encourage consumers to also focus on alleviating the stress and frustration caused by a computer that is underperforming,” says Roddy McLean, marketing director, “Often times, all it takes to get a computer back up to speed and resolve performance issues is a simple do-it-yourself memory upgrade. It might just be the easiest and most rewarding New Year’s resolution consumers will ever make.”

In addition to speed and reliability, 35% of those who have a computer said longer battery life would be a resolution for their computer in 2013. 29% cited increased storage space, and nearly one-quarter (24%) of computer-owners said they would like their computer to stay cooler when operating. 18% said they wished for their computer to reduce its weight or size in 2013, while only 1 out of 5 said they would not change anything about their computer in 2013.
