Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Computer Hardware The base of operations for the brains of a computer is the motherboard. The motherboard serves as a literal foundation for many of the other elements inside your computer. It's a large printed circuit board. The motherboard provides the connections and sockets that let other components communicate with each other. The types of memory are read-onlymemory and random access memory. Computers can read data stored in ROM, but can't write new data to it. With RAM, computers can read from and write to that memory. Without computer memory, every calculation on a computer would be stateless. Most computers have a hard drive; either a series of thin platters that store information using magnetic recordings or a solid state flash hard drive with no moving parts. In either case, the hard drive allows you to store information and applications directly to your computer. Sound and graphics cards give your computer the ability to display graphics or play sounds and music. Modems are machines that let computers communicate with other computing systems. Modems work well with sound and graphics cards like on Skype or Facetime. The drives in a computer are the devices that let you store and recall data and applications. Most computers have a hard drive. The hard drive allows you to store information and applications directly to your computer. Keyboards are input devices used to do things such as searching on the internet and even programming. Keyboards work with monitors to show and type your information. Monitors are output devices that display your informationon a screen and allows you to see all of your other programs and settings. Mice and keyboards work well as input devices for a monitor, allowing you to access those programs. The mouse is an input device that is used to access programs on a monitor. They display a little arrow, or cursor, that can go over and click on the programs you want. The computer brain is a microprocessor called the central processing unit. The CPU is a chip containing millions of tiny transistors. It's the CPU's job to perform the calculations necessary to make the computer work By Griffin Abbagnaro
