Argh! Small business purchasing equipment

  1. Sep 15, 2010 #1
    I'm working at a small company (less than 10 people), and I need to purchase some high end equipment I know nothing about..... Brings back memories from grad school.

    I've been here less than two weeks.

    In the past I educate myself on the equipment, and figure out what the relevant parameters are. But it always seemed like I was missing some relevant parameter(s). This whole situation makes me feel like an idiot!

    Does anyone else have this sort of situation? How do you go about dealing with it?

    Too vague! Someone must know about it, ask them what their requirements are.
