Processor

The main body or brain of a computer, also called the system unit. Consists of a plastic or metal enclosure, the motherboard (main circuit board), and (typically) internal hard disk/drives, power supply, cooling fans, and whatever circuit boards plugged into the motherboard, such as a video/graphics card and USB ports.
Inside is the CPU which is housed on a tiny silicon chip that contains millions of switches and pathways that help your computer interpret and execute instructions. This is where the mathematical calculations and logical comparisons are done. Also in the processor is the Hard drive. The hard drive is what stores all your data. It houses the hard disk, where all your files and folders are physically located. A typical hard drive is only slightly larger than your hand, yet can hold over 100 GB of data. The data is stored on a stack of disks that are mounted inside a solid encasement.
