The parts listed can do such across curved monitors easily and efficiently. A lot of storage is needed as I would plan to work with a lot of customers which is why I picked 1 tb as opposed to 64 gb or 128 gb. The graphics and processor are the best out in my opinion on the market so it can run smoothly. A strong internet connection is required which is why I would use ethernet over wifi. b) I would ask them what tasks they would want to get done on said computers, the budget, and how important connection is to them. The reason being because I would then choose specs that cater to the duties needing to be performed with the money I am given and also to see if I would need to invest in ethernet cables or wifi adapters. c) A typical business computer should be replaced every 3-5 years while a personal computer should be replaced every 8-10 years. Personal computers most of the time do not endure the same type of work that work computers do, in other words most people are on work computers 8 hours a day while a personal computer not so much. c) Windows XP - 4/8/2014 Windows 7 - 1/14/2020 Windows 10 - 10/14/2025 Mac OS 10 - 6/22/2001 Mac OS X 10.2 - 3/4/2007 Mac OS X 11 - 11/12/2020 Ubuntu 14.04 - 4/30/2019 Ubuntu 16.04.7 - 4/2026 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 - 3/1/2012 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 - 5/31/2029 CentOS Linux 7 - 6/30/2024 CentOS Linux 4 - 2/29/2012 It’s good to know when to replace your operating system or to know when it is being replaced with another better OS. Misha Kletskoy Torres ITP0015 28 March 2022 Week 2 Assignment 3 Dream Computer Part 2 a) Matterport, Periscope, Docusign and Doorsteps are all forms of software I’ve found that are useful for real estate agents, Matterport allows you to give virtual 3D tours of houses, Periscope is sort of like a live streaming application that allows you to broadcast open houses live to potential buyers, docusign allows you to export PDFS and have clients digitally sign confirmation and Doorsteps allows you to follow up on the buyer on whether they want to buy the house or not. Providing a real estate license is required for Matterport and Doorsteps, a business license is required for docusign, and no credentials are required for Periscope. The best education I could get at Sierra College is to learn through business and IT the ways of running a business like Real-Estate. b) Application Purpose Business? Cost Current? (Important to know if up to date on softwares technology) Google Chrome Search the Internet Yes $0.00 Yes Discord Communicate with others Yes $0.00 Yes Minecraft Play Minecraft No $26.99 Yes Zoom Communicate with others Yes $0.00 Yes Mail Email others Yes $0.00 Yes c) Businesses will have less need for desktops if phones are replacing desktops. Hence, the demand for computers will decline and businesses will continue to thrive off of phones. Businesses can adjust to this by making things remotely more but there should always be a need for desktops purely because they are larger making it easier to manage work. d) All of our work is put in the cloud so it is important for storing our data. It in a way can be used as a record holder for all of our work done in the past until now so it is beneficial in efficiently pulling up past data and saving current data. A drawback however, is that it gives computers that can be hacked access to personal data we do not want out there.
