Your computer may seem like it is made up of the keyboard, the mouse and the monitor but this is only because these are things that you frequently see and use. The truth is, there is more to computers than meets the eye. Literally. In fact, its most important parts are actually hidden from the eyes and housed in a box that you often feel to be too bulky.
You don’t realize that without this big box, you will not have an operating computer. This is called the CPU or the central processing unit. The CPU together with the monitor makes up the computer hardware. The computer hardware refers to the parts that people can physically touch. The hardware includes the processor for which the brand INTEL is famous for, the motherboard where all the parts are adhered to, the hard disk where you will store all the files that you have, the memory which helps keep multiple processes manageable and the graphic and sound card which allows you to be more interactive. The monitor on the other hand is entirely separate from the CPU. It is where we view all the computer work that we do.
This is the counterpart of the programs and the operating system that can be found inside the computer. This is called the software, because it cannot be touched physically. It is just inside the computer. It is the windows that you use everyday right from the moment that you open the computer. It is the Microsoft office that you tinker with or the solitaire game that you relax with during lunchtimes.
Both the hardware and software parts of the computer is important. The hardware is the one that makes all the processes possible. It converts data and presents it in a way that is understandable for you. The software on the other hand makes it more easier for you to manage and do. The truth is computers deal with numbers that will completely be alien language to most people. Having these two interact allows you to create files and make use of these processes in your daily life.
Another important part of the computer is the people ware which is you the user. Without someone who will operate the computer, it will not work. It needs the commands that only you can give whether you do it by typing commands or by clicking the mouse.
