Use word processing software to document what your needs are as a computer user and your justification for selecting either a desktop or laptop computer. Find a Web site that allows you to order and customize a computer and select those options that meet your needs in a cost-effective manner. Assume that you have a budget of $1500. Enter the computer specifications into an Excel spreadsheet that you cut and paste into the document defining your needs. E-mail the document to your instructor.
