Unit 6 Assignment 1. Mobile Devices– With the variety of Mobile devices to choose it can become a daunting task to pick the right one. Well here’s a short yet detailed way to get a better understanding of what key pieces of equipment are needed and what you may or may not need. The first thing you should do is have a baseline that means taking the equipment you use at home and work and compare the two from equipment, portability, and comfort of use. Once that has been done it is time to take a look at devices that may suite those requirements. Mobile technology has come a long way and the need to tote a bulky laptop is no longer need. Tablet, Surface Tablet or Netbooks have become a very popular alternative to your standard laptop. They are lightweight and portable and normally come with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse option if needed. Although suitable for quick task remember if your company has specific programs that require a lot ram or storage space to run this may not be the way to go. Next up would be your mid-size height speed laptop. These are also lightweight but come with onboard keyboard and touch pad. These laptops usually exclude having an optical drive which may not be needed in most cases. If you find yourself needing an optical drive at home but not at work, you can pick one up as a separate accessory. Large High Speed Gaming computers can be used for work but not necessarily the most cost effective purchase using the BYOB program. These laptops are often just as if not faster and more responsive than a top of the line desktop. Usually configured to best suit the needs of high graphics these computers can roughly start out at $1500. Either way you go the most important thing to do is shop around and find the device that fits ‘YOU.” 2. Processers (CPU)- The central processing unit (CPU) of a computer is a piece of hardware that carries out the instructions of a computer program. It performs the basic arithmetical, logical, and input/output operations of a computer system. The CPU is like the brains of the computer - every instruction, no matter how simple, has to go through the CPU. So let's say you press the letter 'k' on your keyboard and it appears on the screen - the CPU of your computer is what makes this possible. The CPU is sometimes also referred to as the central processor unit, or processor for short. A.) AMD vs INTEL- Intel and AMD are the two leading computer processor manufacturers. Nearly producing all of today’s processors each company has pro’s and con’s. Intel has a pretty good hold on the mobile market producing chips that require less power and aren’t nearly as noisy as some of AMD models. AMD does however offer the overclocking available quad core processer at a cheaper price than Intel. Intel strikes back with the offering better graphics from the competitive model and taking it on to the higher end model with 8 Physical Cores and the ability to be over clocked without a doubt beats out AMD. For the budget gamer AMD does however

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
