Hello there,

I am trying to establish the term that I can use to describe the physical equipment of a computer system, for examples, the storage devices, keyboard and the screen. Who has any idea?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Jerry,

The term you are referring to is the "Hardware", so that means the Operating System and other intangible stuff in your computer would be the "Software". I hope this helps.

Hello Jerry,

You can use the term ‘computer hardware’.

The term ‘computer hardware’ is used to describe all physical and tangible components of a computer system.

Eg:  The keyboard, printer, mouse etc.  which are located externally and are visible during daily use

        The hard disk drive, motherboard etc. which are located within the computer and are not visible during daily use

In computer, there are two aspects: the hardware and the software. The hardware part refers to any tangible device or component that you use with the computer like the sound card, video card, network or Ethernet card, keyboard, mouse, monitor, motherboard, memory card or the memory module, speakers, microphone, web cam, external drives like the USB flash drive and external hard drive, and so on.

Software refers to any program or application that you run on the computer like the Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office Excel, Microsoft Office PowerPoint, the entire Microsoft Office suite, games, web browsers, utilities, antivirus, internet security, firewalls, and so on. The Microsoft Windows operating system is also a kind of software that runs the computer. Without the operating system, the computer is just a plain useless machine.
