It is quite obvious that computers are quite complex and that they are comprised of many different components! In this section, we will take a look at a few of the different parts of the computer, ranging from your computer's central processing unit to your computer's oprating system!
The parts of your computer can be divided into two main components, hardware and software:
Your computer's hardware is comprised of the devices that are part of your computer system- like the monitor, the speakers, and the motherboard!
Software is the term used to describe the instructions that are given to your computer so that it will know what operations to carry out. There is no tangible form of software!
