Hardware and Software

By Abigail Goodwin

What is Hardware?

It stores the operating system and also the software. If any laptop did not contain any sort of hard drive(ware) it would not work or even exist. Hardware's are used for multiple things. For Example: A scanner, projector, printer, speakers, mouse, keyboard, and also microphone but there are many, many more. Did you know that a hardware in your computer can store as much as tens of thousands of lose CD's so you might as well by a hardware. A operation which might use hardware is a keyboard with out the keyboard you could not type on to your laptop

What is Software?

Soft ware is where all the programmes and the internet are downloaded. with out software you would not be able to surf the internet nor would you be able to complete word document. Without soft ware you would not be able to have the following things:

  • Excel
  • Powerpoint
  • Access
  • Word
  • Paint
  • Internet and many, many, more.

Software completes the computers hardware by making it be able to accomplish the input, processing, output, storage, and control activities of information systems. An operation that uses software is, a computer because in your computer you have all the above documents stored in there.

Thank you

An non- suitable device

A device that is not suitable for hardware could be maybe a service station which you use a keyboard, because if someone gets greasy fingers over it and you wipe it down with a WET cloth then it will break unless you have touch screen and then you are ok because then you can wipe it down with a cloth without it breaking.
