• SCSI disk controller (if appropriate)
• SVGA graphics card with 32-64 MB of video RAM

Configuration B needs a more powerful processor since graphics production and desktop publishing will each put a slightly higher load on the processor. The memory has been increased to 512MB to allow the system to handle the large amounts of data involved in graphics or to load large documents into memory. More hard drive space is needed since graphics files are generally quite large, especially at higher resolutions. Similarly, a larger monitor is needed since the job of editing graphics and other printed matter involved in the publishing process can cause eyestrain if performed at too low a resolution.
