Hardware and Software

by Cory Burton

whats the differance?

Hardware is parts of the computer system that are a physical thing and helps it operate such as a monitor or a hard drive. Software are programs coded into the hardware be that a simple code to run a washing machine or a word document on the computer.


software is coded items on the computing system such as search engines, word and paint. These are things that cant be touched but play a large role in how a computer operates. Made up from code, they are programs hardware can run. Hardware are physical objects that can be touched. These determine what something can do when software affects how it does it. Hardware are things such as computers, keyboard, mouse and a Hardrive.
