Functional hardware

The term 'hardware' refers to the tangible parts of a computer system. This is in contrast to 'software', which cannot be physically touched and is used to mean computer programs and data related to them. Today computers, printers and scanners are so commonplace that we've got used to using them in our everyday lives.

So much so that we sometimes forget the amount of complex technology that goes into them - it's no wonder the sensitive parts are safely hidden away under the housing. Nevertheless, PC hardware lies at the heart of modern communication. Without hard drives, graphics cards and internal memory, even the best software is rendered useless. Hardware therefore forms the basis of many different applications.
