CPU

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit, and is normally described as the brain of the computer. Any task you do on a computer has to go through the CPU. It processes what you want and then give you the results.


For example, if I type a letter on the keyboard, the CPU processes which key I pressed and then types the letter on the screen.


ROM

ROM stands for Read Only Memory. This means that information cannot be written to it like a normal storage device.........
