I, Computer: Definition

A computer is a machine that can be programmed to manipulate symbols. Its principal characteristics are:

  • It responds to a specific set of instructions in a well-defined manner.
  • It can execute a prerecorded list of instructions (a program).
  • It can quickly store and retrieve large amounts of data.

Therefore computers can perform complex and repetitive procedures quickly, precisely and reliably. Modern computers are electronic and digital. The actual machinery (wires, transistors, and circuits) is called hardware; the instructions and data are called software. All general-purpose computers require the following hardware components:

  • Central processing unit (CPU): The heart of the computer, this is the component that actually executes instructions organized in programs (“software”) which tell the computer what to do.
  • Memory (fast, expensive, short-term memory): Enables a computer to store, at least temporarily, data, programs, and intermediate results.
  • Mass

A Look at the History of Computers

Before the age of electronics, the closest thing to a computer was the abacus, although, strictly speaking, the abacus is actually a calculator since it requires a human operator. Computers, on the other hand, perform calculations automatically by following a series of built-in commands called software.

In the 20th century, breakthroughs in technology allowed for the ever-evolving computing machines that we now depend upon so totally, we practically never give them a second thought. But even prior to the advent of microprocessors and supercomputers, there were certain notable scientists and inventors who helped lay the groundwork for the technology that’s since drastically reshaped every facet of modern life.

The Language Before the Hardware

The universal language in which computers carry out processor instructions originated in the 17th century in the form of the binary numerical system. Developed by German philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, the system came about

SWS Computers – A Smarter Way To Compute!

SWS Computers – A Smarter Way To Compute!









The Big Picture





A computer system has three main components: hardware, software, and
people. The equipment associated with a computer system is called hardware.
Software is a set of instructions that tells the hardware what to do.
People, however, are the most important component of a computer system – people use
the power of the computer for some purpose.
In fact, this course will show you that the computer can be a tool
for just about
anyone from a business person, to an artist, to a housekeeper, to a student -
an incredibly powerful and flexible tool.





Software is actually a computer program. To be more specific, a program
is a set of step-by-step instructions that directs
