The importance of ram cannot be measured, the point of ram is that it is basically temporary storage for open or being used applications, Ram makes multitasking faster and more efficient.
B)This date is more important than other dates because it set the bar for the computers to include Ram in their devices too and it gave a whole new meaning to multitasking.
A)This is important because the video game industry is one of the biggest industries today and to put them on computers gave the computer more versatility.
B)This date is more important than other dates because it made the computer more user friendly and much more than just something business people use and it is the first of its kind so it opened the door for other companies too.
A)This date is important because Apple is one of the biggest computer and technological industry of this day and has also developed some of the best hardware available.
B)This date is more important than other date because Apple is one the best at what it does. Apple like Microsoft has expanded world wide.
A)This date is important because all computers after this were electronic and it meant that computers could run on electricity.
B)This date is more important than other dates because nowadays all computers are electronic and for this to be the first of its kind it is very important.
A)This is important because the compact disc is still widely used today for many products e.g in the music, software, and game industries.
B)This is more important than other dates because it is the first of its kind and it is still being used today and has many more uses.
