What I learned:

I learned about how to build a computer and what parts I need to make one that I would want. I learned about if I had the money If it was either cheaper or expensive to buy the computer altogether or buy each part separately and I learned that it would be cheaper to buy the computer altogether.

 

My best work:

My best work is an excel worksheet. It gives the prices and names of the parts that I would need to buy to make the computer. The computer I want is very high tech and it would be hard to put it together.

Down below is the excel worksheet.
