What is hardware
Hardware is an electronic piece that forms a PC together with others. It consists of electrical circuits and is controlled by an operating system and software, which have a brain function for this part.
Hardware can be internal or external, that is, it can be housed in a computer case or outside. The major difference between the two is that generally the parts that make up the inside of a PC are connected directly to the motherboard and cannot be easily swapped out in the same period of time as those on the outside.
It is important to remember that other electronic devices also consist of: hardware, such as notebook computers and mobile phones. These, in turn, also have components similar to those of a computer, but with smaller dimensions and different capacities.
