A good thing about Personal Computers are that unlike many other consumer electronics, they are extensively
configurable. Almost each and every aspect of a PC can be custo
mized based on the requirements, tastes and demands
of the user. In a personal comput
er, five of the most critical components that are also the most customized ones based on
the needs of the user are Monitors i.e., the display unit, the RAM, the Processor, the Hard disk Drive and the Graphics
processor unit.

Broadly, users of a personal
computer can be categorized into three:

a) Business and Professionals
: These are the users who will be using the computer for simple
business

related tasks

or
tasks related to their profession such as a Teacher, Lawyer, Doctor etc
. It will mostly include
surfing on the internet,
working on office productivity suite
, on specific business applications

and so on
. Ideally, a smaller screen size, low
powered processor should be an ideal computer for these type of users.
Also, a laptop PC would be a better solut
ion for
these users.

b) Graphics and
Development

users: These type of users will be using their computer primarily
graphics and development
purposes

such as working on

a

Photoshop or 3D Applications
or working on an integrated development environment such

as Eclipse. These users would require a computer which is quite powerful in terms of both processing power of the CPU
and the GPU. Also, the RAM required on these computers would be very high. Another key requirement of these users is
a high quality Displ
ay unit which is capable of displaying millions of colors and which can be calibrated to Adobe RGB.

C
)
Home and Multimedia users: Home and multimedia users will be using their computers mostly for simple tasks such as
browsing internet, reading books, watc
hing videos, listening to music among others. These users require a large sized
display unit, with high capacity hard drive and moderate sized ram.
