Checklist/Guide to Selecting a Small Computer.
Bennett, Wilma E.
This 322-point checklist was designed to help executives make an intelligent choice when selecting a small computer for a business. For ease of use the questions have been divided into ten categories: Display Features, Keyboard Features, Printer Features, Controller Features, Software, Word Processing, Service, Training, Miscellaneous, and Costs. To use the checklist, one reads through the entire list of questions, lining out those which do not apply to a particular business. The remaining items are then categorized to see if they are considered Essential (E) or Nice-to-have (N). Equipment from three different vendors can be compared by making checkmarks in the spaces provided to the right of each question. By completing this checklist it can be determined which computer company comes closest to satisfying one's needs. A glossary of computer terms containing 163 items of jargon frequently found in computer advertisements is included. (Author/LLS)
