Dear Ms. Weston,

Performance of the CPT Equipment

I’m Pleased to tell you about our experience with the CPT Word Processor as you requested recently____example____ I assume you have looked at several machines and have narrowed down your choices.

Here are my observations.

An approach to adopting word processors

We use the equipment as dedicated word processors, although we do have the ability to link up with our computer installation.

The step-at-a-time development of our word-processing center has, we think, saved us money and training time. ____10____

Performance

In terms of performance, the CPT equipment is Excellent. ____11____ Moreover our service contract and warranty have covered all maintenance costs.

We have software packages that check spelling and signal when a mistake occurs. ____12____ Using both printers, we recently prepared 1200 individually typed form letter mailings a under four hours. We have no complaint about our preparation of executive reports.

Example: I

A. So it works very well and has so many different functions.
B. Also it has reduced the confusion that exists about buying software packages.
C. The train stops at each station for only fifteen minutes.
D. We began with two work stations and now have four.
E. Our routine letters are prepared from disc-stored masters.
F. The Rotary W printer with a speed of 45 characters a second can easily handle two input stations.
G. In contrast, its size and weight are ideal for carrying.
H. We have not yet experienced mechanical problems so far.
I. We are pleased with its performance and multi-functions.

8. D 9. F 10.B 11. H 12. E
