    Hey guys,

    Quick question from Mike Meyers book...

    For the OS section - when its listing recommended/listed computer specs for each OS, which ones do i learn? The Microsoft listed ones, which Mike clearly says are too low, or his recommended ones?

    Just ive seen a few questions on this in practice papers :D

    Cheers! :D

    Learn the MS ones. Mike's right in that in quite a few cases they aren't realistic, but as far as I am aware you will only get questioned on what the manufacturer recommends.

    However ... if you were to get a question like ...

    MS recommends the following as a minimum processor speed to run Windows 2000, but what would you pick if your customer wanted to run processor intensive tasks on the PC.

    I don't know if you would get a question like that, but I guess it's possible.

    Thanks Modey!

    That makes sense, i understand the conecpts behind obviously having faster specs so should be able to pick out questions like you gave :D

    Cheers!

    I remember thinking the same thing mate.
    When it comes to any question regarding specification always go for the MS, IEEE etc or the nearest one in the answer. :thumbleft

    Absolutely!

    The minimum specs are just that..SPECS..

    The recommended specs are simply a guidleine to better functionality and are limitless in effect.

    CompTIA weigh heavilly on this stuff,OS specs,upgrade paths and limitations so make sure you know them thoroughly.. 8)
