Chapter 10. Computer Hardware > Office Computers

Office Computers

Companies of all sizes routinely use personal or desktop computers in the office. Computers allow employees to be more productive by automating many repetitive tasks, such as word processing, billing, and filing. Even when an office has only one computer, the administrative assistant may be its most frequent user. You may also be the person who investigates the different types of hardware and software and recommends which PC the office should buy.

Computers available for business uses range from powerful mainframes and minicomputers to networked systems to the personal computers (PCs) many people have in their homes. For most small businesses, personal or desktop computers are often used. These come in a wide variety of different configurations in both IBM-compatible and Apple Macintosh operating systems.
