Given the material covered in Module 3 (Hardware) and Module 4 (Software), your personal experience, and our good friend reliable sources, provide a well-formatted MS Word document (with citations) that provides a framework for comparing two different computing solutions for both hardware and software issues. [Hint: Such a document would most likely include an introduction paragraph, a table comparing individual characteristics, and a conclusion paragraph.]


For example, you might want to compare an iPhone X with an iPhone 7, or an iPhone X with a Galaxy 7, or a PS4 with an XBox, or an Apple Air with a Razer Blade Stealth.


Considerations might include:



  • # of (or importance of) exclusive software products available for that system

  • backwards compatibility for "old" materials from previous systems

  • cost of the system

  • compatibility of the system with supporting services (such as the cell phone network, gaming community, or preferred app store) 

  • availability of support for the system

  • disk space

  • type of external media supported

  • Graphics Card capabilities

  • Processor speed

  • Peripherals support


...Or any other considerations you consider important. A minimum of 2 hardware and 2 software factors must be included.

C O N S O L E W A R S : ‘ 9 0 S E D I T I O N

On September 9, 1995, gaming in the United States was forever altered by the introduction of the Sony PlayStation to the market, which had previously been dominated by Nintendo and Sega products. [1] Released between the other two primary fifth generation consoles—the Sega Saturn having been previously released in May of that year [2] and the Nintendo 64 being released a full year later [3]—it ultimately replaced Sega as the primary Nintendo competitor in the US (the subsequent Sega Dreamcast only being available for three years before the company stopped manufacturing consoles). [4]

During the 1990s, PCs were prohibitively expensive for gaming with a limited selection of game titles, so consoles were the product of choice for gamers of all age-groups and income brackets. [5]How would a parent select which console to get their child for the holidays in December 1996—Nintendo 64 or Sega Saturn, with their well-known brands, or the lesser known Sony? A few key criteria helped guide decision making, and ultimately lead to the final call.

Console Price $299 $199 $399

Cost-conscious parents would of course select the Nintendo 64—tried, proven technology, beloved by all, with well-known software franchises and clear and evident hardware superiority to the newcomer Sony in both Memory and CPU specifications. Many consumers, however, would be leery of the new Nintendo controller’s design, and its proprietary storage and media system. The Saturn had been out for longer, and the CD-ROM was emerging as a dominant media form; the convenience of being able to play CDs on the system, with sound capabilities exceeding those of

both the Sony and the Nintendo product, made the difference. Sega also had an established history of producing high-quality games, most of them for the arcade, and was a major household brand.

History, of course, shows that the PlayStation, with its innovative (yet familiar) controller design, network linking, and inferior hardware performance won the console war [6], leaving many parents dutifully making their decision on the above chart wonder how, and why. The conclusion cannot be summarized by metrics, or methods, but rather by marketing experts and the court of public opinion. Personally, I would have upgraded from a Nintendo Entertainment System, to the SNES, to the PlayStation, for the simple reason that I enjoyed the Final Fantasy franchise, and Final Fantasy VII had been announced for release on the PlayStation in January of 1997. [7] However, had I been advising a parent, I would have strongly recommended the Sega Saturn, with its superior sound, intuitive controller, and well-respected library of constantly developed games.
