An Introduction into Computers
A computer is any device or machine that can be programmed to carry out sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically. Computers are also called general purpose machines, as most of the computers with a CPU (Central Processing Unit) are used in many different applications. For example: smartphones and tablets. To perform these wide ranges of functions, a computer is installed with various software. Web browsers, video calling, word processing and games are a few examples of software.
