    Today, computers are all around us. from desktop computers to Smartphone they're changing the way we live our lives. But have you ever asked yourself "What exactly is a computer?" A computer is an electronic machine which process data into information. the computer sees data as 1's and 0's but it knows how to combine them into more complex things, such as photographs, movies, a website, a game and much more. computer is a combination of hardware and software. Mechanical parts of computers are called hardware i.e. monitor and keyboard. Software is any set of instructions which tells hardware what to do i.e. web browsers, media player and word processor etc.

    A computer is an electronic device that accepts user input knows as data and converts it into desired output known as information. It is a simple term that can be explained just by using one sentence but needs to be broken down to make sure that you understand the term in a comprehensive way.

    It converts user's input known as data. How does the data get to the computer? A computer has special parts known as input devices that help a user to input data in the computer. A keyboard is essential as it helps the user to key in their data. A mouse also comes in handy as it enable the user to control cursor movement in the monitor. Voice input devices also help people who are blind.

    After the data is input, it is processed into information. Data is processed into information using a special type of component in a computer called a central processing unit. The information is then displayed for the user to view their desired output. A monitor helps the users to view their output. Voice output is also used by the blind. Hard copy output such as printouts is also used for various purposes.

    It is the combination of the input devices, the system unit that stores the central processing unit and the output devices that make up a computer.

    Computer is an electronic device for storing and processing data, typically in binary form, according to instructions given to it in a variable program.

    Computer is an electronic device that is designed to work with Information. Nowadays computer is a part of our communication, we are using this for communicate someone, also we are using this to search like me I am student it is really helpful to me to easily get information.

    Computers have both advantages and disadvantages. On one hand, they allow us to access the wealth of information that is available on the internet. They also allow us to analyze massive amounts of data very quickly, saving both time and money. One of the overwhelming advantages of the computer lies in its very necessity.Computer technology and use is of critical importance. Its ability for communication and storing data would represent another advantage. If connected to the internet, its ability to obtain resources would be another attribute. Maybe the disadvantage of computer when your teacher give you a task to search on computer and because of your laziness you can easily copy and paste even you are not sure or you cannot thoroughly understood what written on the sight plus there is a link that should not be included.

    A computer is a device that can helps us do things faster than we thought. A computer is a thing that can allow us to do things easier. A computer can make everybody lazy. A computer is part of our daily life. In short, our life is incomplete without computer because we let computer enters our lives.

    A Computer is an electronic machine that collects raw data, processes it and gives out results like an information to its user. It is a very essential tool in our modern world and its recognized globally for its usefulness as its a major component that makes up the internet. Computers are seen all around us and they make life easier. They include our desktops, laptops, smartphones, televisions, radios, and cellphone. These are connected to network or service providers for the transmission of information for communicating amongst a wider range of computers. Satellite connections are used in areas of low network connectivity. Computer can also perform other functions like watching movies, listening to music and playing games.

    Computer
    Definition - What does Computer mean?
    A computer is a machine or device that performs processes, calculations and operations based on instructions provided by a software or hardware program. It is designed to execute applications and provides a variety of solutions by combining integrated hardware and software components.



    Techopedia explains Computer
    A computer is made up of multiple parts and components that facilitate user functionality. A computer has two primary categories:

    • Hardware: Physical structure that houses a computer's processor, memory, storage, communication ports and peripheral devices
    • Software: Includes operating system (OS) and software applications
    A computer works with software programs that are sent to its underlying hardware architecture for reading, interpretation and execution. Computers are classified according to computing power, capacity, size, mobility and other factors, as personal computers (PC), desktop computers, laptop computers, minicomputers, handheld computers and devices, mainframes or supercomputers.

    according to wikipedia,

    A computer is a device that can be instructed to carry out sequences of arithmetic or logical operations automatically via computer programming. Modern computers have the ability to follow generalized sets of operations, called programs. These programs enable computers to perform an extremely wide range of tasks.

    and for me, tv's, dvd's,mobile phones, remote controls, microwave,remote controlled cars,digital washing machines,drones and etc. as long as it has a program in it,it can be also called computer.
    Because many of us knows the only computer is laptop's and pc's , but for me anything that has program in it is a computer,these are called modern computers..
    just correct me if i am wrong, i have an open mind and willing to be lectured

    A computer is a device that can process data through the programs and algorithms. Computers can also use in designing everything, from small to big. Also, they innovate super computers and trying to analyze more about the brain and how the brain process the data. There is active research to make computers out of many promising new types of technology, such as optical computers, DNA computers, neural computers, and quantum computers. Most computers are universal, and are able to calculate any computable function, and are limited only by their memory capacity and operating speed.

    The computer is a means to an end. It can get a man to the moon, but it can also be used to further conflict and wars. Like most thins on this planet it is a tool one we made to do tasks that could never be done by hand.

    I first came across a good definition of the word computer in my computer class. That was back in the year 2010. My computer teacher defined the computer as an electronic device that accepts input data, processes the data, and output useful information for the user. That's the simplest definition of a computer. Other people like to define it hard, but it will make a newbie hard to grasp and decipher.

    Depending on the perspective, a computer can be the main work tool for many people, as it is in my case, perhaps for my youngest daughter is the main source of entertainment, for my teenage daughter could be a necessary tool to perform tasks of classes, for a hacker could be your weapon of attack or defense and so on, but technically it is all that you have well commented about Hardware, software, processing units, storage, among other contents.

    A computer is an electronic machine that can store and deal with large amounts of informations. A computer is a machine that manipulates data according to a list of instructions called a program. A computer is also a (fairly complicated) tool intended to assist the user in accomplishing information-based tasks ranging from locating and acquiring data/information to to processing it to presenting or transmitting it. An electronic device for storing and processing data, typically in binary form, according to instructions given to it in a variable program.

    A computer is a device made by human to make us smarter or more stupid. It's up to you to decide wich one do you want. Most of the time I use computer to learn how to make more money or to make money online. It is also good for entertaining. You can play video games, watching movies or youtube videos or simply waste your time scrolling trough facebook and google.
