These desktops will come with their own twenty-four inch wide monitor and one year of Dell ProSupport all at a cost of $654 for each. Each of the five buildings was specified to have 10 workstations; however each building will have fifteen workstations instead. This way there will be spare systems in case of any potential growth to take place in any of the offices. The spares can also be used as a replacement workstation
