A memo to the president stating the need to replace the computers.

Create a chart comparing the costs and features. You can decide on the most appropriate chart to display your data.
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that will be presented to the president and the board for approval to purchase the computers. In the presentation, make your recommendation as to which computer you feel would work best for the company.
There are 4 deliverables for this project:

Word processed Memorandum.
Excel Spreadsheet using formulas or functions and an Excel Chart comparing the costs and features of the selected computers.
PowerPoint Presentation with at least 6 slides. The presentation should consist of a title slide, agenda, your charts and graphs, and a concluding slide.
Important Information:

You can embed your chart in a worksheet or create it in a separate chart sheet. With object embedding, the chart may be sized and it enables you to create a compound document with data from several applications. Whereas with linking, your chart is in a separate file. You may want to review object linking and embedding in Chapter 3 of your textbook.
