It is understood that you really mean what is a computer? And you also wish for it to be defined.

Therefore let's start with the definition of a computer.

According to techterms.com a computer is:

• " A programmable machine. This means it can execute a programmed list of instructions and respond to new instructions that it is given. Today, however, the term is most often used to refer to the desktop and laptop computers that most people use."

Computers are now vital in everyday life with most households around the world owning at least one computer. They are present in every school, office, hospital and business with nearly everybody having daily contact with some form of computer.

Most students will now do the bulk of their work on computers and lessons will be posted on the computer for the students to go through as the teacher is explaining on their computer that is usually projected onto a wall. Many exams can now be conducted on computers and so it has taken over the old-fashioned pen and paper or typewriter in almost every aspect of everyday life.

Computers are constantly being updated; becoming smaller, more lightweight and a lot faster. Once a computer was nearly the size of a room and now they can fit in your shirt pocket.

This technology is going to continue to advance and who knows what computers will look like and what they will be able to do in the coming years.
