The reason that such a piece of technology is recommended is that if a computer is top notch and has outstanding specifications, it will not only run quickly, which is important in today's fast paced society, this computer will be able to run many tasks and peripherals all at one time.

With an Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5300 Processor that runs at an ultra fast speed of 2.60 GHz, 3GB DDR2 RAM, and a 320GB Hard Drive, this computer will enable the business professional to not only complete tasks at the speed of lightening, but they will also be able to store large amounts of data without having to run out of disk space. This particular desktop PC comes with Windows Professional; however, should the business professional prefer XP Professional for the sake of familiarity, this is possible to obtain, as this business PC comes with downgrading rights (Misco.co.uk, 2010).

For additional information on this printer, see appendix 2.
