Abstract
A table of four different computers with their differences in hard drive space, RAM, and processor speed. Next is a summary of three professions and what type of computer would be best for their line of work.

Computer Shopper
Type of Computer Hard Drive Memory CPU Price Acer Aspire Pentium All-In-One Touchscreen | 1TB Hard Drive | 4GB RAM | Pentium21270U1.90GHz | $649.99 | HP Business Desktop Pro | 500GB Hard Drive | 2GB RAM | Pentium G860 3GHz | $469.99 | MSI G270 Gaming Notebook | 500GB Hard Drive | 12GB RAM | Intel Core i7 2.40GHz | $1549.99 | Lenova Thinkpad X Series X131e | 320GB Hard Drive | 2GB RAM | AMD E1-Series 1.4GHz | $349.99 |

Computers being used in any profession must be fast or big enough to meet the requirements of its users. An author wouldn’t need very much in the way of power or storage. A cheap all-in-one computer or basic laptop would be fine for their needs. When it comes to video game developers, they need computers with lots of space and lots of power along with a high end video card. They will most likely have ordered a custom built computer with terabytes of space and the newest high end processor. CAD operators also need lots of space and power for the work they do. A computer with a terabyte of space and a high end processor along with six to eight gigabytes of RAM should be fine.

Nt1110 Unit 5 Analysis 1

...There was a Pentium microprocessor flaw known as the FDIV bug. The bug is a flaw in the Intel P5 Pentium floating point unit. The bug causes the processor to return incorrect results for many calculations in math and science. Intel claims that it was a problem on a few missing entries in the lookup table used by the company. The flaw was rarely encountered by users. It was discovered by Professor Thomas Nicely, a professor of mathematics at Lynchburg College. He noticed the bug when he had written a code and noticed some inconsistencies in calculations once he added the Pentium system to his computers. He discovered this issue in June of 1994 but was unable to eliminate other factors until October of 1994. He reported the problem to Intel and they admitted that they were aware of the bug since May of 1994. Intel acknowledged the flaw, but claimed that it was not serious and would not affect most users. They offered to replace the processors to customers who could prove that they were affected by the flaw. This response did not make the public happy. They later decided to offer to replace all flawed Pentium processors on request of the customer. It turned out that only a fraction of the Pentium processor owners bothered to get their chips replaced. I believe that Intel did handle this problem in a professional manner and gave the people reasonable options to get their chips replaced. I think that the chip did not affect most people and had little or no effect to...

If he uses a computer that is short on the needed speed than he could miss out on a good trading price for oil, electricity, or nuclear fuels. For this job 4 GB of RAM and at least 1 GB of hard drive will suffice just fine. But for up to the second price change you will most likely want a processor speed of 3 Ghz. So for this job you want the Ghz of the Erazer but only need the hard drive and RAM of the Slimline. So I would go with a model type that would have those specifications. Which isn't in the above table. Graphic designer: Graphic design integrates computers in virtually every step of the design process from conception to production and in a range of media including print, video, and web.

Nt1110 Unit 6 Analysis 1: Memory Cost

...1. Your OS will use the hard drive as a "swap file" or virtual memory, if your PC runs out of RAM while you are working away. Using your hard drive as memory causes a serious performance hit, as hard drives are slower than RAM. You must have enough memory, adding more does not help if you are not doing anything that needs more memory. Today, a modern PC and a modern OS need about 4 gigs to achieve this for most standard users. You want enough RAM so the OS doesn't start using the hard drive as memory. 2. The user with the three 200 GB hard disks has the advantage, because he can utilize all three disks simultaneously, while the other one can only use that single disk. The user with the three disks will probably be able to do more, faster. 3. A typical home computer user would require RAID technology if they use their computer as a home office and have data that is invaluable or irreplaceable. The option is becoming more popular because of the speed increase, and or data reliability you achieve when you set RAID up. A typical business user would use RAID to provide data redundancy, fault tolerance, increased capacity, and increased performance. Data redundancy protects the data from hard drive failures. This benefit is good for companies or individuals that have critical or important data to protect, or just anyone that's paranoid about losing data. Fault tolerance goes hand in hand with redundancy in providing a better over-all storage system. RAID also provides......

Unit 1 Assignment 1 Home Computer Analysis

...Unit 1 - Assignment 1 - Home Computer Analysis Fortunately my home computer is already running Windows 7 ultimate x64 edition so there isn’t anything for me to upgrade to yet, unless windows 8 gets released soon but even then I won’t probably upgrade. My computer is home built and has an Intel E8400 3.0 Gig Dual Core processor with 4 gigs of DDR3 and 2 Terabytes of hard drive space. I’m also running an NVidia GTX 560 TI overclocked video card and hooked up to a 50 Mbps cable modem. I built this computer a few years ago and I built it for gaming so it’s not top of the line anymore but more than supports any operating system you can throw at it. Let’s suppose I had windows 7 Home Premium and wished to upgrade. Luckily my computer can easily support any version of windows 7 so all I would have to do is run the Windows Anytime Upgrade and upgrade to which version I wished. Since each version is a superset of the higher version you can easily upgrade to higher versions. Also since windows 7 places the entire OS on the hard disk it isn’t an upgrade in the traditional since, it’s just a matter of activating features that are already there. If I had a 32 bit version and wished to go to a 64 bit version I wouldn’t however be able to do an anytime upgrade. When your going from different bit versions you need to do a clean install to install the whole 32 or 64 bit version. This is the only time I would need to do a clean install, if I wanted to go back to x32 for some strange......

Nt1110 Unit 5 Analysis 1: Pentium Flaw

...Unit 5 Analysis 1: Pentium Flaw The Intel Pentium microprocessor was introduced on March, 1993 that was hugely popular among consumers because of its cheap price and decent performance. Unfortunately, the early versions of these microprocessors had a flow within the floating point unit (also called a math coprocessor). This caused the Pentium's FPU to incorrectly divide certain floating-point numbers. Because only certain numbers divide incorrectly and Intel assumed that many users would never encounter the division error, the company decided to keep the issue quiet and fix the problem in updates to the chip. Thomas Nicely, a math professor at Lynchburg College, discovered the error however, and after sending his findings to Intel with no response, he posted his findings on the Internet, where others confirmed his theories. When Intel finally announced the bug, they originally said that they would only replace chips for users that require high-accuracy calculations, but when IBM publically refused to sell computers with faulty chips, Intel offered to replace all flawed Pentium processors. Because Intel chose to keep the flaw quiet, and because they originally refused to recall the product, they caused a great public outcry. Their mistakes also ended up costing them over $475 million and damaged their image. Intel now currently post all flaws and bugs that they find in their products in order to avoid another catastrophe like the Pentium Flaw. Other companies also take......

The reason for this being is the Doctor only needs to store patient’s information which included records and more. So I would recommend a computer with about 250 GB - 500 GB, a 2 GB - 3 GB Memory and a Processor of 1.2 GHz - 1.8 GHz to store and access patient’s information in a timely matter. A Lawyer would need a computer with a large Hard Drive, Memory and Processor. The reason being is the Lawyer would need to have fast access to client’s information and other legal information relating to law.

Nt1110 Unit 2 Act 1

...one. 1. Numbers involved in both the addition and subtraction of fractions need to have a common denominator in order to be solved, having the smallest common denominator will make the addition and subtraction easier since you would be working with smaller numbers. Example: 2/4 + 3/8, you could multiply the denominators and get 32 or just have 8 as the common denominator either way the final answer have to be the same. 2. Relationship Two: Fractions that are multiplied result in a larger fraction that all too often must be reduced to its smallest form. For example: if you multiply 2/5 by 5/6 it will equal to 10/30, in this case you must simplify it will equal to 1/3. 3. Relationship Three: The division of fractions normally results in an improper fraction this number must then be turned into a mixed number in order to be properly graphed. Example: (2/3)/ (5/8) =16/15, this means there is 1 entire thing plus 1/15 of the thing. 4. Relationship Four: It is easier to divide fractions by charting the solution in order to determine whether or not the solution is correct. Example: (3/5)/ (2/3) = 9/10 5. Relationship Five: Regardless of the size of the denominator the numerator remains small and proportional to the denominator. Example: 15/6 is an improper fraction because the denominator have to be bigger than the numerator. 15/6 is 2½. 6. All fractions must be simplify to the smallest number possible. Example: 3/6= ½, 15/5= 3 20/60= 1/3...
