Computer System Scenarios

When suggesting a system for a client it is of the important to keep their needs, wants, expectations, and financial situation in mind. Keeping true to this, it’s easy to see what would suit these situations best. First off; let me say, in all of the situations listed with the exception of SBI Corporation a desktop system would be sufficient

Based on the needs of the floral shop, a newer desktop PC, with the proper software and a Palm PC would work well. The Desktop system through software such as Peachtree would be efficient enough to keep track of Customer information, orders and it would allow them to bill clients electronically.

These notebooks and desktops have proven to be much more efficient and stable for audio recording and playback. John could also use the system to follow his finances and access the internet.

For the most part direct connect workstations have gone the way of the past. Desktops and notebooks are taking over the functions they used to handle. That is why in the situations above the desktop is more then suitable to handle their individual needs. For lack of a better way of putting it, “they are good work horses”.
