A drive is a device which stores information when the computer is not in use. It saves work in the drive and when you come back to it the next day it is able to give back that saved piece of work. A drive had a lot of moving parts that caused the computer or laptop to be very thick, however a solid state drive (the new invention) is much smaller and thinner and can make the computer much thinner.
This is the old Hard Drive.
SSD (Solid State Drive)
This divice is the new drive which is much smaller and takes up less space than the new one.
CPU (Central Processing Unit)
CPU is basically the brain of the computer, it processes information using a device called a microprocessor. The microprocessor is a small chip.
