Describe the 5 key parts of a micro-computer.


A micro-computer is a machine built with hardware and ran by software. The 5 key parts among the various hardware and software are as follows.

Write down about the computer hardware devices in the organization of a micro computer.


A basic PC (Personal Computer) has a number of computer hardware elements. Most of these elements are contained in the system unit of the micro computer. The hardware devices in the organization of a micro computer are as follows.

Write short notes on Optical Storage Device


Storage Device:

Those memory devices where we can store data and the data remains in it even without electricity are called storage devices. Along with various programs and system software, user can also keep, delete, move, update the data in storage devices, while this can not be done in memory devices by the user.

Storage devices are very important, along with the need storage for our data, the system software needs to store it's necessary file and configuration even when the computer has no electricity. 

There are primarily 2 types of storage devices; one of those are Optical Storage Devices.

8 Differences between Memory and Storage devices

Though it may seem from the names that memory and storage devices are same thing, but actually they are far different. Following are the differences between Memory and Storage Devices.


What are the 4 Types of Computer Hardware?


Computer Hardware: 

Computer Hardware is any part of the computer that can be touched. These are primarily electronic devices used to build up the computer. Computer Hardware actually perform the computing operations along with taking input and outputting the computed result or to store that.

There are four categories of computer hardware, they are being described below.

Compare among different types of memory devices in terms of performance and costs

Comparing Different Types of Memory Devices in Terms of Cost & Performance:

The best way to measure the cost of a memory device is the purchase price of a complete unit of its. Let C be the price in dollars of a complete memory system with S bits of storage capacity. The cost c of the memory will be defined as follows,
The performance is determined by the rate at which data can be read or written from/ onto the device.
