  3. Step-by-Step Computer Upgrade Whitepaper

    I posted this whitepaper to support the new Computer Help and Networking forum on MrPLC.com. I wrote this document a long time ago about three or four years ago to help people make their own choices on how to upgrade their computers. I suppose that some of the information is OUTDATED but here you will learn allot about computer hardware by reading through this document.
    As a Controls Engineer you'll find yourself more and more required to understand computer hardware and most defiantly understand networking. Networking knowledge is a MUST in the Controls Engineering field now-a-days. Enjoy this whitepaper.
