Computers being data processing devices have the following
of instructions in a fraction of a second. The speed of the computer is
measured in Neno seconds.
Perform each and
every computation with 100% accuracy.
Computers can be
used in many fields of operation, such as, Education, Engineering Medicine, and
Diligence: Can perform a
task repetitively for N number of times, without any degradation in processing
Can store huge
amount of data within themselves in a limited area.
store information our day-to-day lives in files, notebooks and diaries, this
storage is the Manual Storage System. The same can also be done on a computer
in a much more organized way. Here also the information is stored in the form
of files, but on disks and tapes. This helps in easy and speedy retrieval of
information. This storage is known as Electronic Storage System.
More accurate while dealing with large numbers.
Work at constant efficiency.
Are used in almost every field.
Process millions of instructions in a fraction of a second.
Effective and efficient data storage and retrieval.
After having looked at the
characteristics of a computer, the advantages of using it become very obvious.
