By: Lyndsey Murphey

Graphic Designer Recommendation

Graphic Designers have a need for workstations that have access to a great amount of computing power. Large amounts of memory and Graphics processing capacity are especially important when opening and creating these types of files. For that reason, it was decided that The Dell Precision Tower 7910 was a good fit for the needs of the Graphic Designer.

Cashier Recomendation

POS or Point of Sale systems are becoming more the norm in the marketplace as time goes on. It was only natural that one of these systems should be recommended for the cashier. While the HP RP7 Model 7800 may be a little dated, it still has plenty to offer our cashier. HP has many peripherals that are made to go with this system.

Sales Representative Recomendation

Not every computer has to be a powerhouse. It's not likely that our Sales representative is going to get and more use out of a current generation I7 processor than she is something more mediocre. In the case of the case of the sales representative, duribility, reliability, and compactness are probably going to be more important. This makes the HP EliteBook Folio 1020 G1 Notebook PC a good choice. It's specifications are more than enough for the day-to-day computing needs of the representative and it's light weight makes carrying it around less tedious that other more bulky laptops. As a plus there is also built-in biometric identification for extra security.
