Small Network Sales Proposal

My neighbor is starting a small billing business and has asked me to price out and design network for him. He will be starting from scratch and in talking to him about his needs, I have determined that what he wants is the following; he needs a server that will support at least 3 users. Also he wants 2 workstations and 2 laptops. He wants Wi-Fi to connect all of this plus Internet access and multiple email addresses. Also he wants this network to be totally secure as his coming is going to do medical billing procedures.
Here are my suggestions to him as described in this proposal.
Since this small business ...view middle of the document...

This server comes with 2GB PC3-10600E 1x2GB 2Rank Memory, Embedded SATA RAID Controller with Embedded RAID (0,1), 2 HP 250GB 3G SATA Non-Hot Plug 7,200rpm 3.5 inch Entry Hard Drive (1-year warranty), HP Half-Height SATA DVD-RW Black Bezel Optical Drive Kit, embedded HP NC107i PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet Server Adapter, Wireless Network Adapter, HP 150w Non-Hot Plug, Non-Redundant Power Supply and 1 Year Next Day Parts Replacement, 1 Year Labor and 1 Year Onsite support.
I have also priced out for him a HP RDX160 Internal Removable Disk Backup System. It's affordable, rugged and backing up is simple with drag and drop file access. He can protect his server and the workstations if he chooses so because of the HP RDX Continuous Data Protection Software. The RDX Removable Disk Backup System offers fast disk based performance with the ability to store 160 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB or 1 TB of data on a single removable disk cartridge at speeds of up to 108 GB per hour. They are portable, durable and rugged removable disk cartridges which he can simply and securely store backups off site for data protection.
I have advised the client to purchase three (3) HP RDX 160GB Removable Disk Cartridges to start out with for his backups but strongly encourage him to expand that total to fourteen (14) for two weeks’ worth of backups, then he can put them back in rotation every two weeks.
This server will come with Windows Small Business Server 2011 Standard with a 5 User Client Access License. As far as the Server operating system is concerned I do not see him growing out of this for quite a while.
Also I have priced out for him Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 Small Business Edition Basic (10 User) for complete virus, website and intrusion protection. In my opinion this is the most overwhelming threat that any individual or business (whether big or small) faces in this age and locking your network down is a must. Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition protects computers and servers with the most effective small business antivirus, anti-malware technologies available in a single, integrated solution. This software separates safe files from those at risk for faster, fewer, smarter scans. It will not slow users down or swallow up system resources and eliminates up to 70% of scan overhead for performance so users won’t know it is there. I strongly encourage the client to purchase this software.
I have suggested the Cisco RV220W Wireless Network Security Firewall Wired and Wireless Connectivity for Small Office. This firewall connects easily to the Internet, to other locations, and to employees working remotely. The employees can have fast access to large files and multimedia applications. This wireless router features high-performance Gigabit Ethernet connections, including a 4-port switch, and a high-speed, selectable dual-band wireless-N access point, as well as support for Small Business Quick VPN software. Also contains flexibility for highly...
