Note that I changed the printer from a rental to a purchase as the rental is a recurring expense and provided Linksys E1000 as the model number for the router in addition to other changes so the flow of the document makes sense. Please review and let me know if you need further changes.

I will be away from my computer for the rest of the day in about an hour so please let me know soon if you have any questions with the document.

yes sorry it took me so long. Can you please explain how you got the totals? I figure out how you got the 1 one.

The pricing for each item I added was pulled from the ATT, HP and I believe New Egg for the Linksys. So the first set of totals is for the computer equipment plus installation (labor). Second is network equipment and network installation labor.The last one is for monthly fees for the upgraded ATT DSL. Let me know if that helps and answers your questions.

Not really. I understand where the cost each come from but you added total column and I was wondering how did you come up with the totals? For example the 1st description cost $233.00 * 2 = $466.00. I understand how you got that total for the 1st description but for the rest I'm not sure how you came up with the totals.
