Computer components

A computer is a machine that processes information and is made up of different components. A computer system can be divided into hardware and software. Hardware is the name for all the parts of a computer system that can be touched, for example the mouse or keyboard. Basically these devices can be split into: central processing unit (CPU), input devices (digital camera, scanner, microphone, keyboard) , output devices ( screen (monitor) printer), backing store (memory) Software is the name for all of the programs that are needed to run the hardware. Without software the hardware would be useless. A software package is a program or set of programs together with a full set of documentation. Software programs are usually one of two types: systems programs or applications.
