Comparison of two computers

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Comparison of two computers The two computers I will be comparing are the Solo 1000 and the ProSentia 3000. The ProSentia is slightly more expensive than the solo at �899 than the solo at �589. The first computer, the solo, has an AMD Athlon 1000MHz processor but the ProSentia has a Pentium 4 processor 1.4 GHz that is faster than the solo. The processor is the brains of the computer and carries out the tasks, so a faster computer would suite policies 'R' us because all tasks can be carried out quicker. ...read more.

Middle

The solo would have more space on it than the ProSentia, this also has a 128 Mb RDRAM which is the same as the solo, the memory isn't as important because it is only used to run the programs, But Policies 'R' us will not need the memory to be to big because there programs wont be to complicated. The ProSentia comes complete with software including Microsoft Office that contains Word, Excel, Access, Outlook and Publisher. This would save the company buying it separately. ...read more.

Conclusion

The ProSentia has a larger processor at 1.4GHz. This means that they can do things Quick so things are more efficient. It does not have as much of a hard drive as the solo but Policies 'R' us will not need that much hard drive because they will not need to save that many programs only ones linked to work. They both have the same amount of memory they so this does not matter any way. The ProSentia is more money but it is definitely worth it. ...read more.

Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite basic. The report does explain the differences between the two computers. However this is laid-out very poorly, and the report doesn't explain each component. The report states how each computer varies and explains what the computer has got and states a little about why this is. This shows the examiner a basic understanding of what each different component is, for example RAM. However the report is quite basic, and these could be improved and developed.

Level of analysis

In addition, to the above, the report is quite basic. For high marks the report would need to explain in-detail what each component is, for example 'An hard drive is an hardware unit which stores computer data, to allow the computer to store and secure information, such as Personal Documents'. This would show that the student has an in-depth understanding of each of the different parts within a computer. The student would need to describe each component in detail, such as the above.

Quality of writing

The presentation of the report is quite poor, as it's very difficult to understand which computer is better by reading the report. I would suggest placing all the information into a table, as this would allow the examiner to view the clear differences. In addition, the student is still able to explain in-depth by explaining each aspect below the table.
