Project scope[edit]

As most of our executive are using PC and the quality of the products is not very good at all. So we apply this Mac Computer project. Those Macbook Pro can help us to produce some high quality presentations, publications and high definition video which we will publish to public during the seminars, events or on the internet. The software on Mac like Final Cut, iWork and CS5 can help us to produce such an amazing product which the PC cannot do easily. The product that we show to the public can definitely create a good image to them.

Project goal[edit]

- Produce keynote by iWork for presentations (like Education Toolkits for Liberal Studies Project)

- Produce publications by iWork/CS5 for public (like Education Toolkits for Liberal Studies Project)

- Produce high-definition video by Final Cut for the Project (for the video taken from events and presentations)

- Give presentations in seminar by using those Macbook Pro

- Use those Macbook Pro at least 3 years

Non-financial requirements[edit]


Fit to strategy[edit]


Other benefits[edit]

I think we can bring these Macbook Pro to the venue of the presentation, and it really gives a professional image to the audience, as most Hong Kong people think Mac is more professional.

Measures of success[edit]

We hope this project can help other applied projects, like Education Toolkits for Liberal Studies Project and Online shop project, to produce high quality products and results. We hope the Macbook Pro can be bought to give presentations in the events or seminars too.
