Hardware

The system requires certain pieces of hardware in order to run properly. These include the following areas of hardware:

I have used Excel to create the project. For the actual system for the party planners I would specify the use of a more up-to-date PC system such as a dell vostro 1525 with an Intel core i5 processor system running Windows 7 as the quality of the output will be better and the planner may need to run several versions at the same time.

A monitor is required for the system as an output device to display images. CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitors are big but have strong screens with glass screens that don't get damaged easily. However, they make quite a lot of heat and noise. They also take up a lot of space due to their size.

Response to the question

A good piece of work to identify the best hardware and software needed for your chosen company. You have shown the requirements for their system and then proceeded to show a few examples of suitable software that will fulfil the task. You could go into a little bit more detail on a few points, such as the opening paragraph, when you say “quality of the output will be better.” How and why would the output be better?

Level of analysis

You have used technical terms correctly and appropriately. You have shown the need to have certain hardware and detailed its use in the system you are describing for the company. You have shown the advantages and disadvantages of your chosen components and an alternative, and then weighed up each part and chosen the most appropriate component and software for the job.

Quality of writing

The spelling and grammar is close to perfect throughout; the only problems are a few misplaced apostrophes and suchlike, but these are minor issues and communication is of an overall high standard. You clearly show and explain your points without the piece being hard or awkward to read.
