What’s Inside A Computer?

You’re looking at the Sunday paper where all the circulars are advertising computers on sale. Desktops and laptops are on sale, different makes, models and prices. Which one should you get? You haven’t a clue, have you?

Do you know what you’re looking for? It’s ok, if you don’t. But before you even THINK about getting a computer, you should know what is INSIDE the computer. Notice, I said ‘what is IN the computer’ not what you see when it’s advertised in the newspaper or what you see when you go to the store. You’ll learn that a little later.

Right now, your lesson begins. You need to know what makes up the computer – knowing what is on the inside of the computer is more important than what is on the outside.
