he narrative in your write-up should include a short recap of the final recommended PC configuration. Make sure all the tables in the Project Instructions are included in your write-up. I suggest you use a table layout of three columns: Group (Input, Output , Etc), Device, Requirement; then one row for each Device. Arrange your tables so that you don't leave lots of blank rows. It's not necessary to repeat the group designation for each entry. A minor thing, but it improves readability if you identify the group once and then go on and list the devices/items that belong to that group. Also, it's not necessary to try and identify how many devices you'll need. Assume that you are recommending five PCs that are all equipped the same. There are some possible exceptions to this approach. You might have a device that is shared between the five computers (scanner/printer, maybe?) and in that case you should say so. You need to specify how a particular item ties back to a specific requirement. You are presenting to the CIO who will want to see details.Is the monitor large enough to accomodate high quality pictures and videos? For the hard drive, you should specify not only the capacity but also the interface (IDE, SATA, PATA), spin speed (5400, 7200) and cache (8, 16, 32, 64 MB). Can the scanner and printer provide sufficient resolution to deal with hiqh-quality photos ? How about flash drives for transferring files between PCs? Here are some examples for improving individual specifications. Example 1: Don't assign too many requirements to the keyboard/mouse entries. A keyboard doesn't really create documents and spreadsheets, right? You really use office applications to satisfy that requirement. Those devices enable input to the computer and that's about it. Important, yes, but not directly tied to that requirement. Example 2: "Scanner". This isn't enough information to tell what the device is capable of. The CIO wants to know how it's "tricked out". What model is it? Is it an All-In-One or standalone (why?)? How much RAM does it have? Does it have wireless capability? Can it accept camera memory cards? What resolution can it handle? Example 3: "Adapter Card". The CIO wants to create and edit high quality photos and videos. This usually means you'll need a beefed-up graphics adapter. Be prepared to answer these questions: What model is it? How much RAM does it have? Is it integrated or discrete? This means you need to understand a little about graphics cards. Integrated means it is a chip (not an actual card) that is part of the motherboard. Typically, integrated video is ok but not as powerful as discrete video cards. These are actual adapter cards that have lots more circuitry and dedicated RAM than the smaller integrated chips. So they are more powerful and better for the CIO's requirements. Be aware - there is a difference between desktop and notebook architecture.…

their perception, influence mood for the better, and use for relaxation purposes. However, many people have a delusional assumption regarding this drug. This is because they are under the impression that marijuana is harmless; this is not the case. A research conducted by Boothroyd found that the use of the drug impinges on the brain that is responsible for memory consequently causing memory loss (Boothroyd, 127). The drug also affects learning capabilities of the victim as well as the attention span…

Nanotechnology: How far can it go and how long
will it take?
Imagine being able to swallow a vial of liquid and have it cure cancer. That
sounds like a pretty strong, expensive medicine, but in fact it is not a medicine at all.
They are tiny little robots that are programmed to pick unhealthy cells and destroy
them but also to use the matter from the destroyed cells to create more tiny robots.

A look into the Memory Retention: Can stimulants increase a person’s memory? A quantitative research proposal.
For this research proposal, memory will be looked into to see whether a person’s memory can be increased via the intake of stimulants. This quantitative research will then look into whether there are any future benefits in consuming stimulants if memory is found to be increased. There is already research similar in nature…

Research papers are a common type of paper for students to write, especially when they are attending college. These papers require students to perform research, such as utilizing primary and secondary sources to draw new conclusions. For students who have not written this type of paper before, it may seem daunting. There are many free sample research papers online for those who want to see how to structure their paper and other details.Diane Hacker, an author who writes manuals for students writing…
