I would have(recommend) for your i.t buisiness a/an:
- Tower Model Desktop(for traking and multitaking)
Its a computer in which its energy comes from power supply (outlet).
The tower model has motherboard, and mass storage devices which are stacked on top of

each other in a cabinet.


The main advantage of tower models is that there are fewer space constraints
- Mass storage device (external hard drives, flash drive and pen drive)
This will allow your data to be monile any where a usb port are available
They contain a data organise system(file system)
- Computer(information) Security
To protect various malware from attacking your computer
Computer Security warrns you about what files or website are safe
Provides an act of ensuring that data is not lost when critical issues arise.

Reflection
This project help showed me the typical buisiness environment that people go into

everyday when planing a technical buisiness, aince this is the new modern era of

technology. How do people with all of their setups the prices of technology included with

high wage paying of vat.


The planing of the services invovled for the computer such as

printing/photocopying, also the 20 computer needed for each department such as; Video

Productions Video Editing- 20 computers, IT Unit- 20 computers, Administration 20

computer,Acadmey 20 computer. Mr. David Smith ask me to give his refrences to all of

this.
The operating system section had given me some trouble but I had to carefull

anylise the operating sytem to suit needs and see the cost in the role of the budget which

$4,000,000 in his buisiness the three operating systems I recommended were lunix mac

osx, and windows 7/8. The data can be seen throught the project and my marked citations

for furthet information , this can be seen in the letter.


The computers like the imac for students in the training room are indeed

expensive but woth great results and insuarance, the printers I have taken the liberty for

you to see the reviews for the advantages.I also put in the letter and spreedsheeet the

security cameras cost. This is the detailes specifications of my project and reviews.
