What is a computer? In this article, I want to talk about it as you all know that is an electronic machine which processes millions of instructions in one second, as you have information about the past that the people were using animals for transferring their email from one place to another place but now the modern technology the internet that we are using inside our smartphones or PC that can do that process in one second, It is a machine that is not only useable for one purpose the people are using that for different kinds of purpose in order to live comfortably. for the first time when scientist they made a planned to make a thing that human beings should be too much relaxin future.

What is a computer?
Is an electronic machine that can solve different problems, process data, store and retrieve data and perform calculations faster and efficiently than humans. for example, in the past when humans want to count the money that will take too much time but nowadays a machine or computer can count a large amount of money in a second. and it is designed to execute the applications and provides the solution by combining software and hardware.
- Hardware. the physical structure of machine based on the parts of it that are the processor, memory, storage, hard disk, and communication parts of the computer.
- Software. includes an operating system (OS) and software application like Microsoft Office, Graphics programmes and many other programmes those are the parts of the software.
Is derived or taken from a Latin word “computer” which means to “calculate” or to count to sump up to think together, so more precisely the word computer means a device that performs a computation. or a computer is an electronic machine that can store thousands of information in it or can run or process many applications of software at the same time.
Definition of Computer
A computer is a programme or electronic device with a set of instructions to perform specific tasks and generate results at a very high speed. for example, when we are counting something with a machine we count that too much easily so if we count that with our hand can’t work fast like or it can’t be too much speed.
Computer first used
According to researchers the word “Computer” was first used in a book called “the Young mans gleanings” in 1613. But the first mechanical PC was developed by Charles Babbage in 1822, as Charles baggage was thinking that he should make a calculation machine for people but again by his trying hard work he found the idea and he made part-part of and started from the different engine until he becomes a success for his work.

How Important Computer is Nowadays?
Nowadays computer has become of our daily life, therefore, pc from a part of the technology that works fast and better for the improvement our today’s life, at the first pc build to work fast but nowadays the computer becomes a part of our life that the world of technology become change by computer. It’s almost everything is doing nowadays through that, we research most of the information by, for instance, when we are facing any problem directly we are contacting google. and I believe the computer is vital in today’s atmosphere.
The reason people are using Computer
People use a computer to make there work fast and easier. for example, communicating, transferring data, banking or any another a purpose. as you know that is a machine that doesn’t need rest like a reboot, they can do their jobs for a long day unless depends on the virus as you all know that has huge storage that can store lots of information unlike human will forget too much soon because their minds can’t work like.
