Therefore, the report will focus on HP Notebook - 15-AC647TU and Microsoft Surface Pro 4 in order to assess the best possible one for the organization.
The purpose of this report was to analyze two poplar notebooks in a detail way so that it can able to depict the best suitable machine for the training staff (Sigmar, Hynes & Hill, 2012). Apart from analyzing the user-friendly attitude of these notebooks, the report also wants to analyze which one of these notebooks can be carried easily. Since, training staffs often have to carry their notebooks to various client locations.
Since, the prime purpose of the report was to analyze the best possible notebook for the training staffs so that they can able to carry it easily to the several client locations. It provides scope for the report to analyze its use on the corporate sectors as well as the features that can benefits corporate operations.
For gathering information, the report has utilized Australian PC Authority magazine as well as other business magazines as well (Bargiela-Chiappini & Nickerson, 2014). The information relevant to these selected notebooks is also collected from the company websites. The report has considered company
The report has assessed few limitations for both the selected notebooks. The limitations are mentions as follows:
ïƒ¼ Additional information apart from those which are provided in the company websites are very difficult to access
ïƒ¼ Very minimum availability of both the notebooks in the local retail stores which induces organization to become more biased towards the online purchase
ïƒ¼ The report has also found that proper information regarding the up-gradation of the software packages which eventually creates obstacles in assessing the best possible notebooks for the trainers
The report has assumed that all the necessary software that are required for the organization to fulfill their task (Rogerson-Revell, 2014). Especially, the software package that is necessary for the trainers is included in both the devices. Thus, the report has considered that the company will able to utilize both the devices for the providing training purpose. In addition, as every employees in the organization are well equipped with the advance new technology, the report has assumed that implementation of either of these selected device will not create any difficulties in the organizational process (Meredith, 2012). The report also assumes that warranty period for these two selected device are same so that it does not provide any advantage at the time of assessment.
Since, the prime purpose of the report to is to identify the best possible notebook for the organization that can provide help to the trainers to provide effective training for the convenience at the convenient places of the client (Mai & Hoffmann, 2014). The organization will have to focus more on the training perspectives, as it will help the organization to conduct businesses with the clients much more effectively.
The report has gone through an in-depth analysis in order to asses both the selected device. As mentions earlier, the report has utilized several tools and techniques in order to gather accurate information about both devices (Cardon & Marshall, 2015). The findings for the selected devices are as follows:
2.1 HP Notebook - 15-AC647TU:
• Cost: $384
• Weight: 2.1 Kg
• Size: (W x D x H) 157 x 175 x 24.3 mm
• Screen size: 15.6"
• Clarity of screen image: Very high resolution, set at 1366 x 768 pixels. The high resolution allows people to see all the details. However, at the same time, it is very easy on the eyes.

• Disk Drive: CD-ROM and 500 GB
• Speed of the CPU: 1.6GHz Intel Pentium Quad-Core N3700
• Battery capabilities: Li-ion battery 4 cell. Therefore, it is expected that the smart battery will able to fulfill the requirement of the organization. However, the report has highlighted that organization will able to utilize the device in a much more effective way if the battery life of device could have been a little higher (PC & Tech Authority. 2016).
• Service agreements and warranties: the report highlighted that two years warranty for each parts
Microsoft Surface Pro 4:
• Cost: $899
• Weight: 766 grams
• Size: (W x D x H) 292.10 x 201.42 x 8.45 mm
• Screen size: 12.30"
• Clarity of screen image: The report identified that resolution of the device is set at the level 2736x1824 pixels (PC & Tech Authority 2016). Therefore, the device is capable of describing every detail. However, like the previous devices, this particular device is also very easy to the eyes. Thus, it will allow the users to utilize the device for a longer period of time.
• RAM: 8GB, upgrade available, $242 for 16 GB.
• Disk drives: 256 GB drives are available for this particular device. Therefore, the report assess that memory device is comparatively lower than other device.
• Speed of the CPU: this particular device utilize an extremely newly version of the core m3 processor that allows multitasking in a smother way (Kankaanranta & Lu, 2013). In addition, it is also very capable of implementing any software that can allow the trainers to conduct training session in an effective way.
• Battery capabilities: - 2.5 hours from a lithium-ion battery
• Service agreements and warranties: for this particular device, the organization has provided three years guarantee. Therefore, it will comparatively provide more assistance to the organization to conduct the training program effectively.
The report assess that the price difference between the selected two devices is significant (Chumikov et al., 2016). As a result, organizations will have to keep in mind before the selection of any particular device for training purpose. From the cost perspective, it is obvious that Microsoft notebook will have additional features as compared to HP products.
Weight and size:
From the above table it can be assess that HP notebook is comparatively heavier than the Microsoft product. Therefore, it can be observe that Microsoft notebook can be easily carried over different places according to the client requirements in order to implement training program effectively. Furthermore, lightweight of Microsoft notebook will allow easy use for the users (Crews & Stitt-Gohdes, 2012).
The above table highlighted that HP products has the advantage. Since, it has the larger screen size as compared to Microsoft Notebook. In addition, Guffey & Loewy (2012) mentions that larger screen allows to implement training program effectively, as it has the potential to provide greater view to the learners. Furthermore, larger screen size creates lesser strain to the eyes when it had to be use for a longer period of time. Thus, it might induce organization to select HP notebook for the implementation in the training program.
Clarity of screen size:
However, the above specification highlights that screen resolution of Microsoft notebook is much higher than the HP notebook. Therefore, it is obvious that Microsoft notebook will able to provide high quality visualization for the clients. Hence, it also can provide benefit to the training program that the organization is looking to implement at the different location according to the client convenience.
Hard disk and RAM size:
From the above table, it can be assess that the RAM in the HP notebook is just 4 GB as compared to the 8 GB RAM in the Microsoft notebook (Okoro & Washington, 2012). Thus, it is expected that Microsoft notebook will able to provide much faster implementation of any given task which is necessary for the effective implementation of the training program.
However, the above mention specification also highlights that hard disk or storage device is far higher for the HP notebook as compared to the Microsoft one. Thus, it reflects that HP notebook will allow organization to store more important information than Microsoft device. As mentions by (Sigmar, Hynes & Hill, 2012) higher storage device is essential for the corporate usage. Since, many important notes or document will have to be stored in such a way so that it can be accessed at any given point of time.
Speed of the CPU:
From the above specification, it can be assess that Microsoft notebook is far more advance as compared to the HP notebooks. Therefore, Microsoft notebook will allow the organization utilize the training program in a much more effective way (Berry, 2013). However, the CPU of HP notebook is also a high quality product that has the capability to perform several tasks at a given point of time. Nevertheless, if the comparison is made on the selected two notebooks, Microsoft notebook will have the upper hand.
The above mention specification highlights that battery backup of both the selected devices are almost same. Therefore, it will not provide any advantage to any of the selected devices. However, both the selected devices have 2.5 hours of battery backup (Wang, 2013). Thus, it is not up to the expected level of the organization.
Warranties and service agreements:
From the above table, it can be assess that Microsoft is providing three years of service warranty as compared to HP’s two years. Thus, it will automatically influence the organization to select Microsoft notebook for the implementation of the training program at the selected client places. However, HP also provides two years of warranty for the every parts of the device.
After the investigation of both the devices, it can be assess that Microsoft notebook has greater advantages that the HP notebooks. Since, the above assessment highlights that Microsoft has higher specification in the most of the categories. Therefore, it will automatically induce organization to select Microsoft notebook for the training program. However, as mentions earlier HP device is much cheaper as compared to the Microsoft device. Therefore, it is expected that HP will not able to provide specifications as compared to Microsoft device. However, from the specification of the HP device it can be assessing that it will able to provide proper help to the training program for the organization.
Recommendation and implementation:
The recommendation of the report as follows:
ïƒ¼ Organization firstly will have to consider the factors that it will need to consider before selecting the device for the training program. Since, if organization priorities cost over the specification, HP notebook will have to be selected by the organization. On the other hand, if organization priorities quality over the price, it will have to select Microsoft device over the HP one.
ïƒ¼ For the full utilization of the devices, the organizations will have to provide proper net connection to the employees. Since, proper implementation of the training program will require video conferencing, online call with clients and employees that cannot be possible without proper net connection.
