Then choose *2* different computer systems offered by local and/or online retailers. Compare and contrast their virtues by listing what HARDWARE each of the two boxes has with specific details from the advertisements., filling in the chart as completely as you can. NOTE: you must be sure you are looking at one specific computer for each ad; be careful of ads that say Intel Pentium P4 2.4-3.4 GB. That means you have a choice of several processor speeds. Get one that gives you the specific processor speed, amount of memory, etc.
Attach to the chart the ads from the newspapers or online site listing the HARDWARE you've summarized on the chart.
Finally, in approximately 250 words of well-crafted prose, state which computer is a better buy and why. Also state what additional hardware you would add to the computer system you choose and why.
