Introduction

Hardware and Software I am going to look at Hardware and Software in Human Resources There are different types of hardware devices like: * Input devices like keyboards or mice * Output devices like printers or screens * Processing devices like cpu, modem and motherboard * Storage devices like the hard disk or USB stick * ports and cables to link everything together Hardware Input devices are devices like keyboard, Mouse, Scanner, Digital Camera, and Microphone. These devices allow the users to put information onto the computer. Mouse is a device that controls the movement of the arrow on a display screen.
