Computer Systems Scenarios

Scenario 1:

The system that I would recommend for Sarah’s Flower Designs would be for them to purchase a desktop system. Desktop systems are powerful enough and have ample amount of memory for the tasks that the employees of Sarah’s Flower Designs will be using on a day to day basis. For example, If Sarah wanted to make a floral design all she will need to do is have some sort of flower designing software like SketchUp or Adobe Print Shop.

Another advantage of having a laptop is that the user will be able to access the company’s network to gain access to documents that are stored on the company’s server. These will be great tools for the traveling employee to have to be more efficient on the road.
