79 identify the different types of computers

  1. 1. • Identify the different types of computers • Give the uses and importance of computers Use and Importance of the Different Types of Computers Prepared by: PAUL C. GONZALES Teacher I ESCES - Midsayap West District
  2. 2. • A computer is on electronic device that helps people perform different tasks. The four types of computers include: 1) Microcomputers or Personal Computers 2) Mini Computers or Portable Computers 3) Mainframe Computers 4) Supercomputers
  3. 3.  is generally a synonym for the more common term personal computer or PC, a computer designed for an individual. It uses microprocessor technology to input, manipulate, store and output data,  Businesses use personal computers for word processing, accounting and desktop publishing and for running spreadsheet and database management applications. At home, the most popular use for personal computers is for playing games. MICROCOMPUTERS
  4. 4. Two Classifications of Microcomputers 1. Personal Computer or PC 2. Portable Computer
  5. 5. Personal Computers It have become widely popular with people of all lifestyles because they are powerful, affordable and easy to use. Personal 'computers are of various sizes and design.
  6. 6. Portable Computers These include laptop or sub-notebook, tablet computer and personal digital assistants. They are small enough 10 move easily from one place to another and they can operate on batteries. They are popular with people who travel and need computing power on the go.
  7. 7. Laptop / Notebook Computer A small, portable computer - small enough that it can sit on your lap. Nowadays, laptop computers are more frequently called notebook computers. Aside from size, the principal difference between a notebook and a personal computer is the display screen. Notebook computers use a variety of techniques, known as flat panel technologies, to produce a lightweight bred non-bulky display screen.
  8. 8. Tablet PC  This provides the full power and functionality of today's notebook PCs. With a tablet PC, you can use your computer more often and in more situations than ever before - at your desk, in the hallway, in a meeting room, on the manufacturing floor, in a client's office or on room, Long battery life arid light weight make the Tablet PC more mobile than current notebook PCs. The streamlined designs make the tablet PC less obtrusive to use when you are in a meeting or working away from your desk.
  9. 9. Microsoft's Tablet PC is a design for a fully-equipped personal computer that allows a user to take notes using natural handwriting on a stylus - or digital pen-sensitive touch screen instead of requiring the use of a keyboard.

It will run existing Windows-based applications and is intended to be the user's primary personal computer as well as a note-taking device.
  10. 10. A midsized computer. In size and power, minicomputers lie between workstations and mainframes. In general, a minicomputer is a multi-processing system capable of supporting from 4 to about 200 users simultaneously. Minicomputer
  11. 11. A very large and expensive computer capable of supporting hundreds or even thousands of users simultaneously. In the hierarchy that starts with a simple microprocessor at the bottom and moves to supercomputers at the top, mainframes are just below supercomputers. In some ways, mainframes are more powerful than supercomputers because they support more simultaneous programs. Mainframe Computer
  12. 12. This is the fastest type of computer. Supercomputers are very expensive and are employed for specialized applications that require immense amounts of mathematical calculations, For example, weather forecasting requires a supercomputer. Other uses of supercomputers include animated graphics, fluid dynamic calculations, nuclear energy research and petroleum exploration. Supercomputer
  13. 13. When do we use microcomputers? Minicomputers? Mainframe computers? Supercomputers?
