For the case study provided to you, create MS Word tables that identify and contain the hardware and software
requirements to meet the director's requirements. The MS Word document in its final form will include 6 MS Word tables.
It will include a two-paragraph narrative summary that classifies the user type and identifies the PC category that will be
recommended. The specific instructions are found in the table at the end of this file.
Students are expected to conduct external research to adequately address all aspects of the assignment requirements. It
is suggested that students use a computer manufacturer's site (i.e., Apple, Dell, Toshiba) to help in identifying all the
components needed to meet the director's requirements. Remember, although there are 5 computers to be purchased,
you are required to configure only one, as the same one may be purchased for all 5 employees. Any outside sources
should be correctly cited in APA style at the end of the table. Students will need to include specific requirements from the
case study to show why each item is being recommended. Each element listed below must be incorporated into the
assignment. Omissions will result in loss of points.
Make and model and description are required, when at all possible.. For example, if the solution suggested is a 32” IBM
Monitor, say so. Do not just say monitor because that does not provide sufficient information for a purchase. It is not
necessary, for example, to identify the make and model of a USB port.
