Sarah just graduated from high school, and is going on to college. Her parents

are willing to give her some money to get a good laptop. For Sarah I choose to go to to search for a laptop for her. She was given $1000.00 for the laptop. I was

able to find a laptop for $899.99 at dell.

Here are the key components for the laptop I chose:

Processor: 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-3632QM (6MB cache, up to 3.2 GHz)

Operating System: Windows 8, 64-bit, English

Display: 17.3” High Definition+(900p) LED Display with Truelife

Memory: 8GB4 Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz

Hard Drive: 1TB 5400 RPM SATA Hard Drive

Optical Drive: 8X Tray Load CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GT 630M 1GB

Warranty: 90 days Premium Phone Support + 1 Year In-Home Service after Remote


Weight: 7.23 lbs.

The reason I chose this computer for Sarah, is because it has enough ram, and a

larger hard drive to it can be capable of anything that Sarah needs. With the entire ram

and a large hard drive Sarah can take the laptop and do anything with college or even

work. It can process anything she can throw at it.

Len is a gamer and wants a new laptop that has good sound and high

quality graphics. He just received a $1500.00 bonus. Lens wants to build his own

gaming intensive pc. To be able to get the best quality pc he fist needs to get a CPU

and a processor. For $319.00 Len can buy an Intel Core i7-3770K Quad-Core

Processor 3.5 GHz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 – BX80637I73770K. Next would be the

Gaming Card or GPU. For $550.00 Len can get a EVGA GeForce GTX670 Super

Clocked 2048MB GDDR5 256bit, 2x Dual-Link DVI, HDMI, Display Port, 4-Way SLI

Ready Graphics Card 02G-P4-2672-KR. After the Gaming Card, Len then needs to buy

the Memory or Ram. For the price of $85.99 Len could get 16 GB of Ram Corsair

Vengeance Blue 16 GB DDR3 SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit

CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9B. Once he has processor, gaming card, and ram, Len need so

get a mother board. A GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD3 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6 GB/s USB 3.0 ATX

Motherboard will cost $244.00. The fasting gaming Hard Drive is going to cost $ 94.00, Western

Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM –

WD1002FAEX. Purchasing a SATA II SSD so ideally you’d just go with one that is SATA

III, reliable, and with the fastest read/write times for the money. So for $ 91.00 Len can

get the Crucial 128 GB m4 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive SATA 6 GB/s CT128M4SSD2. It’s still nice

to have a Blu-Ray Drive or DVDRW, Pioneer BDR-206DBK 12x Internal Blu-ray Disc/

DVD/CD Writer (Black) OEM – No software is $95.00. To be able to run the CPU Len

needs to get a good power supply. So it is recommended to buy the OCZ ModXStream

Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge

Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom for $80.00. To house all the components Len needs to

buy a Gaming desktop Tower. Len can purchase a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced

Full Tower Case with SuperSpeed USB 3.0 (RC-932-KKN5-GP) for $180.00. Len

doesn’t have to go will the components that I have listed, but it is recommend for the

best gamming system.
