I hope it meets all expectations required. Hardware 1. Keyboard: A keyboard is a peripheral or device that consists of a se t of keys, such as a typewriter, allowing input data to a computer or digital de vice. The keys on computer keyboards are usually classified as follows: â ¢ â ¢ â ¢ Al phanumeric keys: letters and numbers. Keys score: comma, period, semicolon, amon g others. Special keys: function keys, control keys, arrow keys, shift key, amon g others. 2. Mouse: The mouse or mouse input device is a computer, usually made of plastic. U sed with one of the user's hands and detects the relative movement in two dimens ions on the horizontal surface on which it rests, usually reflected by a pointer or arrow on the monitor. Its use is easy, and is used to move quickly through t he items displayed on the screen and choose the information that interests us mo re easily. 3. Monitor: The monitor or computer screen, although it is common to call "Screen" is an output device through an interface, shows the results of processi ng a computer. 4. CPU: Central Processing Unit, CPU, or simply processor, is the component in a digital computer that interprets instructions and processes data in computer programs. CPUs provide the fundamental characteristic of the digital computer (programmability) and are one of the necessary components found in com puters of any era, along with primary storage and input / output. It is known as a microprocessor CPU that is manufactured using integrated circuits. 5. Hard Drive: The hard drive is a nonvolatile storage device, ie

retains information that has been stored properly even with the loss of energy, uses a digital magnetic recording system, is where in most cases is stored on co mputer operating system. In this type of disc is inside the case a series of sta cked metal plates spinning at high speed. These dishes are placed on the heads i n charge of reading or writing magnetic impulses. 6. Memories: The computer has several storage devices: Memory ROM RAM external m emories. An important aspect of memory is the ability to do it on the permanent media, primarily the so-called "files" saved to disk. ⠢ The accumulator ⠢ ⠢ ⠢ 7. Processor chip that acts as the brain of a device (in this case, a Handheld), ie the central unit in a computer that controls, among other things, implementatio n of programs and applications. 8. Cable ID: Type of cable, usually gray, which is used to connect the IDE connecto rs on the motherboard to a storage device (especially hard drives). Generally ea ch IDE cable to connect two devices, the problem is that only one device can be transferring data at a time. 9. Fan: It is very important not to cover and you have enough space to ventilate the internet from the PC, especially the microprocessor and power supp ly. 10. Power Supply: This is the part that connects to the current distributes the electricity to other components of the computer, without power supply, the computer does not wo rk, while a low-quality components may burn or "thunder" in a cloud of blue smok e. 11. Video Card: is an electronic component required to generate a video signal that is sent to a video screen via a cable. The video card is usually located on the motherboard of the computer system or an expansion card. Video Card Type: C ard Card CGA EGA VGA card SVGA card 12. USB: Universal Serial Bus (universal serial bus) or Universal Serial Driver, USB commonly abbreviated, is a port used to connect peripherals to a computer. 13. Modem: A modem is a device used to modulate and demodulate (amplitude, often€stage or another system) called carrier signal by another input signal ca lled modules. 14. Speaker: Any transformer or other device designed to increase the breadth of beeps. 15. Printer: computer peripheral that allows you to produce a permanent copy tex t or graphics of documents stored in electronic form, print them on physical media , usually on paper or transparencies, using ink or laser technology.

Software 1. MSN: is a collection of Internet services provided by Microsoft. Initially released on August 24, 1995, to coincide with the launch of Windows 95 . The range of services provided has changed significantly since its launch. 2. Internet: Internet is a decentralized set of interconnected communications ne tworks that use the family of TCP / IP, ensuring that heterogeneous physical net works that make up work as a single logical network, worldwide. 3.

Nero Express comes free with many optical disc recorders. 9. Ares is a P2P file-sharing program created in mid-2002. It is free software a nd is developed in Delphi programming language for Microsoft Windows operating s ystem. Currently you can use the Ares network in GNU / Linux by GIFT, or officia l client running under Wine. 10. Corel Draw: CorelDRAW is an advanced graphic editing (graphics) with basic p age layout used in the field of graphic arts part of the package Graphics Suite and Corel software is developed by Corel Corp oration. 11.

It is a component of Mi crosoft Office suite but does not include the "basic" package. Conclusion I have come to the conclusion that through evolution suffers every day computer systems, its easy to use and offers many functions, one can say that also has in creased the number of users working with computers, but not before highlight the Internet, a communication channel effectively and efficiently, which binds us a ll through a computer. I also learned that software refers to computer software or software of a digital computer and the hardware is the physical part of a com puter and the widest of any electronic device.
