IT 100 Recommending a Computer for Purchase The goal of this assignment is to: help demystify the process of recommending and purchasing a computer for different users through the use of computer ads, web resources, and personal knowledge afford each class member time to practice features of the word processing. This assignment is divided into four parts or components. Please work in groups of two to complete this assignment. 1. Do some thinking about the computer needs and wants of these four groups - heavy duty gamers; beginning college students on a tight budget; parents with three children (all ages at home); and a retiree. Create a table with two columns and at least 12 rows in ‘Landscape’ view. Summarize the perceived needs and wants of each group in separate bulleted lists in column one of the table. Your table should begin to look like this: User Groups Heavy duty gamer Oversized monitor 400 GB hard drive College Student etc 2. Next, select from ads or web resources, four computers, one for each user group identified above. Each computer must be from a different manufacturer. For example, two or more selected computers cannot be from Dell. Copy the information or ad for each computer and paste it into a single word processing document. Save this document. 3. Summarize the specs for each of the four computers identified above in another table. The table should have at minimum five columns and at minimum 15 rows and be placed on a page using the ‘Landscape’ page view. List the specifications identified below in column one, starting on row two. Place at the top of table columns two, three, four, five the names of the computers identified in the ads you selected. Locate the related information from each ad and place it in the appropriate area in the table. If the information cannot be found in the ad, indicate NA. The specifications should include these factors but you may choose to add more: Desktop or laptop Size of hard drive Manufacturer Storage media supported (disk drive, CD, DVD etc) Warranty Operating system Processor Application software included Processor speed Size of screen and resolution, if known Clock speed Wireless or wired Amount of RAM Price Your table should look something like this: Toshiba 1500X Dell XPS 5689 HP 4500 Compaq 3126 Desktop or laptop Manufacturer Warranty etc Center and bold column and row headings and demonstrate the use of borders and shading in the table. 4. Use a bulleted list to summarize the reasons why you selected a particular computer for each group. Place this list in column two of the table created in number 1 above and directly across from the corresponding user group. When finished, you should have four bulleted lists identifying each group’s possible needs and wants and four related bulleted lists that justify you computer selection for each group. Hide all table borders as shown below and save this document. The table should look something like this: User Groups Heavy duty gamer Oversized monitor 100 GB hard drive College Student etc Computer Selection Toshiba 1500X HP 4500 5. Final submission of this document should include: four ads, a computer summary specification table, and a table with bulleted lists. Additionally, please make sure that you have demonstrated your use of these word processing features: Insert a graphic Table Word art Borders and shading Bold, center, indents, bullets Your lab instructor will present ideas as to how to include these components and perhaps others in your assignment.
