Profession 1: Video Editor
For the video editor, I believe the Dell XPS 700 would be most efficient. It has 12 GB of RAM, which is essential for fast processing as video editing, rendering, and recording can put a big strain on a PC with less RAM. The hard drive is also especially important; at 1TB it should give you plenty of room for multiple video files and editing/recording software, as this can potentially take up a large amount of space.

Profession 2: DJ
The Acer Aspire 2-in-1 may be best for the professional DJ, as this particular profession requires a fair amount of RAM and a good processor for multitasking (running the “mixing” software, inputting multiple commands into said software, recording, etc.). This also requires a large hard drive for the software itself, and hundreds (possibly thousands) of songs. Laptops are also ideal for easy transportation, minimum wire connections (for less clutter). The hybrid HD/SDD is also very useful, as the rapid data access, lesser heat production and reduced power draw on the battery will make the laptop less likely to fail or malfunction under the stressful conditions of functioning in a club where a DJ may perform.

Profession 3: Photographer
For the photographer, the HP H8 1220 is a good choice. While it lacks the convenience of uploading/editing photos on-the-go like a laptop, at 2TB, it has sufficient hard drive space for photo editing software, tens of thousands of photos, and anything else you may need. With 10GB of RAM, a photographer could easily upload a set of photos, and begin editing photos from a different shoot while the aforementioned photos are still being uploaded, while also listening to their favorite songs even, without the worry of the PC slowing down or possibly even crashing.…...

Starting with Music Production, The computer I believe is the best for this profession is an iMac. A music producer needs to have equipment around it, so a desktop would fit perfect here. Now for the Medicine profession, I have chosen the Dell – Inspiron One. With all the new software for diagnosis and patient treatment, it is needed to have a powerful computer. Here again, I believe a desktop would be best since it is best if a doctor does not have a laptop when treating patients. Lastly, for graphic Design I think either the MacBook Pro or the iMac would be ideal. Photoshop and Dreamweaver are to powerful tools in this field and not only Macs have better graphics and sharper images, but in my opinion these computers are more user friendly.

... NT1110 Friday P.M. Repair Shop Well in this situation there are many pros and cons. The pros to this situation would be one you still have everything on the DVD but you have to put it all back on the computer. This would affect someone who has had the computer for a while because they may have more information on the computer to that of a new computer. Just installing the operating system and formatting the hard drives means any applications they have on the computer are gone and would have to be reinstalled which could take a while or may not be available at the time they need them. If someone has had the computer for a while and just used it for the internet they would not be as bad off as say a student who has all his work on the computer. Someone who uses it for business could be affected very badly also. They would probably have a lot of work on the computer and may lose some of this work if they have to get rid of the operating system and would then have to hope they have it backed up somewhere and then have to put it back on the computer, which could take a long time. It would also be bad for say someone like an author who has saved all of his work on this computer because he may lose some of it and have to spend a lot of time putting it back on the computer....

Choosing a Computer based on 3 different professions After checking the table of computer comparison I can mention that a computer shopper has to purchase a computer depends of their needing and the purpose for they want to use the computer. Such as, an educator will need a computer whit a 4GB RAM amount, at less 500 GB for a Hard Drive Size and a Processor Speed of 1.8 GHz because they most of the time use Power Point and Internet, and they don’t use to store a lot of information on their computers. Also I can mention that a graphic designer will need a computer with the following features. System Memory (RAM) 16GB, a Hard Drive of 1TB can upgrade to 2TB and a Processor Speed of 2.81GHz. A graphic designer will need a computer will at less this features because they need store a lot of data information.

...Table of Computer Comparison Choosing a Computer based on 3 different professions When a shopper is looking for a computer they just don’t look at the price they look to see if it fits all the needs that it will be used for. They also look to see if the computer if going to be at a fixed location or it has to be portable. So, after looking over the table of computer comparison, I was able to determine what profession the computer would be the best fit for all there need. A Teacher would need a computer like the DELL Inspiron with its 4GB of RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, and a processor speed of 3.0GHz. The computer would be used for the internet and creating documents such as word, excel, and power point. They wouldn’t need a massive hard drive on their computer due to the fact that they would store a lot of their course info on it. It would be too easy for a student to break a password and steal an answer sheet for a test. A Graphic Designer would be using the iMac. With its 8GB of Ram, 1 TB Hard drive, and a processor speed of 3.4GHz. They would need to have a computer that has a large hard drive to store all the designs. With the use of Dreamweaver and Photoshop they will need all the storage that they can get. IMac’s are also known for making extreme designs with outstanding colors. That is why the iMac’s are the working horses of the design field. A medical professional [doctor or nurse] would make great use of the Sony VAIO. The VIAO has 8GB of RAM, 1TB Hard......

The field mechanic travels around to different jobsites to perform their job so they would need a portable computer that can create spreadsheets, access the internet and something slightly ruggedized. Nothing fancy, it doesn’t need to be too powerful or even have that much space on its hard disk. A photographer might prefer a Mac or MacBook, depending on whether they work out of an office or not, because of the graphics and display. Also, Apple’s operating system seems to strike a chord with the artistic type of person because it is clean and nice to look at. These computers tend to be very easy to work with. Students will more than likely prefer a laptop computer that they can take to class, and can choose either a pc or a Mac since you can run Microsoft Office on either type of machine. Unless they want a computer for gaming they will not need anything with a lot of processing power, and unless they are......

I went to Best buy and asked them to help me find two desktops and also two laptops based on the professions they are needed for. First desk top I got was the Lenovo k45e desk top it has 8GB of ram as well as 2GB of ram for graphics and the 2 GB ram is separate from the 8 which makes it total of 10 GB of ram; it has an Intel I5 processor with the speed of 3.2GHZ and hard disk capacity of 1TB. The second desktop I got was the ACEs M11BB07 desktop which has 8GB of ram and 1TB of hard disk capacity and also an AMD A10 processor with the speed of 3.7GHZ. The laptops I got were The Aces g75 which had 8 GB of ram and 1TB o hard drive capacity and also I7 quad core processor. The last notebook I got was actually a tablet from windows called the surface tablet pro 3 which has 4 GB of ram and also flash memory and you could use an usb port to expand your memory and also processor speed of 1.9GHZ and turbo boost.

...Computer Shopper Just about all professions, these days, require the use of computers. They help record, organize and store anything we need them to. The use of computers has grown rapidly and it is hard to get a job without having at least a basic knowledge of how they work. There are some professions, though, that use computers a lot more than others. Some of these professions would be grueling without the help of computers. I have chosen three professions and four computers. For the computers, I have chosen the Dell Inspiron Desk Top, the Hp Pavilion Slimline desk top, the Toshiba Satellite Laptop and the Hp Envy laptop. I have chosen author, educator and lawyer as my profession. I will pair the appropriate computer with its profession. An author may seem like they would not need much in the way of computers. Often times they do not even use computers to write, but instead prefer pen and paper. However, the work will have to put into a computer sooner or later. An author probably would not be in need for very much space. Their work will most likely be stored on portable storage devices so that they can transport it agencies. Because of this, I think that a suitable computer for an author would be the Toshiba Satellite laptop. It has memory and hard drive space, just not a lot. It is cheap and would serve its purpose for the author perfectly without having the extra features. Teachers and instructors have a little more of need for space. Again, however, they don’t need...

If it is just for paperwork, emails and Internet they shouldn’t need much. In most doctors offices they should and most likely do have servers. The server would handle all the heavy work and that means the towers would just need the minimum. Now if it were a dentist with an ICat X-Ray machine they would most likely need a higher end PC with a good graphics card. A Scientist is like a doctor but with much more information. There computers and servers would need to be higher end and most likely they would need bigger monitors. They would also have many more programs doing multiple calculations. The PC would have to be very fast and so would the server. An Educator doesn’t need much since the school has servers also. Most teachers just pull information from the Internet and the school servers. Depending on the school the PC’s are most likely outdated anyway. Also most schools get there computers in bulk for all teachers....

An educator doesn’t really need any special advanced hardware. I believe any normal computer works for an educator. I guess it is a user preference how fast the individual wants the computer to be, how much storage space he or she would need, and how much money is being spent. Again it depends what the educator prefers mobile portable Laptop or a stationary desktop.

In addition, most Accountants use laptops, with double screen monitors at the office, which makes it easy for to maneuver between systems and documents.
