In today’s post, we are going to tell you about Characteristics of computer. So friends, we must read this post till the end.
What is computer?
A computer is an electronic device that processes information into data inputted from the user and provides information as a result. Which follows the instrruction given by the user.
Characteristics of computer
1. Hight speed
If many people take a downtime to solve a complex calculation. So the computer can solve that complex calculation in a few seconds. Because computer is a fast machine. This computer’s speed is measured in million of instructions per second (MIPS).
A computer has the ability to execute millions of instructions in a second. That is, a simple mathematical calculation makes the computer solve anything in micro-seconds. the computer performs any task very fast.
2. Storage Capacity
The computer does its work without any fault. Like you are asked to multiply 20 numbers. So you will make mistakes again and again. But there is no mistake in the process of computer. So the computer can do that multiplication without any mistake. There may be a mistake while giving input data from computer. But the computer never makes mistakes by itself.
The computer has a lot of space for storing data. In which you can store your data. Mostly SSD (Solid-state drive) and Hard Drive are used to store computer data. This is called secondary storage device. The storage capacity of a computer is measured in Terabytes (TB), Gigabytes (GB), Kilobytes (KB), and Megabytes (MB).
A computer is an automatic machine. In which the given work is able to be done automatically. Once a user feeds his instruction into the computer. Automates the entire process until it brings the computer output.
A computer can do a lot of things at the same time. Like you can work on notepad while listening to the song. Many applications in the computer can be run at the same time.
