    computers with a parallel structure

    Dear friends,

    I've got a question to you about the usage of the indefinite/zero article in a sentence taken from my technical paper:

    "In order to improve the efficiency of software-hardware implementation we employed computers with a parallel structure based on CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture)"

    Is the usage of "a" correct before "parallel structure"?

    Thanks

    It looks okay to me. (I have no idea what you are talking about.)

    I am not a teacher.

    Without knowing what you're talking about either, the 'a' seems OK. However, I think it depends on what the structures are parallel to. If the meaning is that the computers had structures that were parallel to each other, I would say 'we employed computers with parallel structures…'.
