What are the features / strenghts of a computer?

As computers are being effectively used for a variety of tasks in nearly every field, here are those reasons that are responsible for computer's popularity.
  • Speed
A computer can perform calculations at a very high speed. The work, which a normal person would complete in a few hours, can be done within a fraction of a second by a computer. A powerful computer can execute billions of calculations in a second. The computer's speed at performing a single operation can be measured in terms of seconds. The speed of a computer is usually given in nanoseconds and picoseconds.

Measurement of speed of a computer.
1 Millisecond - 1/1000 second
1 Microsecond - 1/1000 millisecond
1 Nanosecond - 1/1000 microsecond
1 Picosecond - 1/1000 nanosecond
Femtosecond - 1/1000 picosecond

  • Accuracy
  • Automatic
  • Storage capacity
The storing capacity refers to the amount of data a storage device can hold. A computer has high data storage capacity.
The storing capacity of a computer is measured in term of:
0 or 1 = 1 bit
1 nibble = 4 bits
1 byte = 8 bits or 2 nibbles
1 Kilobyte = 1024 bytes
1 Megabyte = 1024 kilobytes
1 Gigabyte = 1024 megabytes
1 Terabyte = 1024 gigabytes
1 Petabyte -= 1024 terabytes
1 Exabyte = 1024 petabytes

  • Reliable
  • Diligent
  • Versatile
