    2. In your own words, explain the difference between the laser in a BD Drive and a DVD or CD drive. How does this affect the storage capacity of the disc? Remember to cite your sources!

  5. Final Project: In the past couple of units you learned about operating system software and hardware. Review the Final Project and consider the following:


    1. Will you use the same operating system software for all computers in the company? What operating system software will you choose? (Remember to include the edition and license)


    2. Visit several sites and select a computer system that is appropriate for the employees in your company. If different groups have different requirements you may need to choose more than one system (for instance, if your graphics group will require different computers than your accountants). Copy and paste the specifications for your computer choice.


    3. Is the included operating system appropriate for use on your company network? How do you know?
