Processor
A typical CPU has a number of components. The first is the arithmetic logic unit
(ALU), which performs simple arithmetic and logical operations. econd is the control
unit (CU), which manages the !arious components of the computer. "t reads and
interprets instructions from memory and transforms them into a series of signals to
acti!ate other parts of the computer. CPUs are located on the motherboard.

RAM
RAM (Random Access Memory) - Usually Dual-Inlne Memory Modules
(DIMMs)!
