Introduction

Selection, justification and evaluation of hardware and software[D1] For this report, I have decided to go with two different computer systems manufacturers Dell and Vaio because they're both famous and have been successful at producing top of the line computer systems and also satisfying the end-user needs[D2]. PC Specification 1 Vaio VGC-JS4EF/Q Cost: �785.00 Operating System Operating System Genuine Windows(r) 7 Home Premium (64-bit[D3]) Architecture Chipset Intel P43 Express Chipset Technical Platform Architecture Intel P43 Chipset Colour Cover Colour Black CPU Section Processor Name Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E7400, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology Processor Manufacturer Intel Processor Speed 2.8 GHZ Number of Cores 2 L2 Cache (MB) 3 Frontside Bus (MHz) 1066 Memory Memory Size (GB) 4 Memory Speed (MHz) 800 Memory Type DDR2 SDRAM (2X2GB) Max.

And since it's been known that media files are big in sizes, I believe 500 GB should be enough to contain them all[D7]. Keyboard and Mouse: Optical mouse provides precision pointing when added with cool keyboard and it also shows some style when it comes to beauty. Network: I may have omitted the network part of this computer but it comes with Gigabit Ethernet which may seem a little over the top but the difference in price is so small it is not worth downgrading, Besides streaming multimedia off the server will be likely to have exceed bandwidth. Display: The X-black LCD with multiple lamp monitor will provide style and ave chosen it because its bright and has a really good resolution of 1680 x 1050. Multiple lamps' are also nicer to use. Graphics: with a graphics card of 2 GB memory it can proof its usefulness when it comes to media rendering and playing the newest games. Drives Speed: the drives speed of the computer is 7200rpm and with 500 GB storage capacity, the drive speed is almost perfect for it because the spin speed will be faster and with its 3mb cache, it won't have any problem retrieving recently saved files[D8]. ...read more.

Conclusion

Web design software included with this desktop is adobe dreamweaver CS4 this because adobe dreamweaver provides advanced usage for professional designers and its also a user friendly software so even beginners wont find it hard to use it. In conclusion, am satting that the vaio desktop should be the betterof the two because it provides its everything that has to do with multimedia and its alot more efficient and reliable than the dell because of its powerful specification[D12] Specifications - Base Specifications - Extended Service [D1]A good specification for the first machine well aid out although it reads a little too much like an advert. You will need to expand on the purpose and function of the components and explain in more detail the components. The media authoring software needs to be added to both machines. On the way to a merit but needs more work [D2]Good [D3]Why 64 bit instead of 32 bit [D4]A bit of a mixture of fonts going on here [D5]Good [D6]What does this mean this is what you should be explaining here [D7]Better [D8]Good [D9]A reasonable effort here [D10]Good observation what about a firewall [D11]Your going to have to a give a better explanation here .
