Chapter 2. Overview of Computer > 2.1 BASIC STRUCTURE OF COMPUTER HARDWARE

2.1 BASIC STRUCTURE OF COMPUTER HARDWARE

The external appearance of modern PCs is simple, attractive and well-known to all of us. It must have a keyboard for instruction input'sometimes a mouse for quicker actions. The display unit is the most prominent one, where we generally look for the output. In some cases, there may be a printer attached with it, resting quietly at one corner. If it is not a laptop, then we can expect to find a separate chassis, housing the system, the source and destination of most of the interconnecting cables.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Because of BlueTooth and other Wi-Fi facilities, the number of these interconnecting cables is decreasing nowadays. Wi-Fi is already available for internet connection and BlueTooth for the mouse. In the near future, all other essential peripheral devices would also be interfaced through wireless communications, eliminating the need of these interconnecting cables, for which the chassis had been famous so far.
