Over the years in this business we have noticed that everyone is not accustom to the PC jargon. Where we refer to
hardware, this means anything physical. We have listed a few common hardware examples:

programs, files, data and information. The hard drive can not be physical repaired, in the event of a drive failure
the only choice is to try to salvage your data off the drive and replace the drive.
The unit for measuring the hard drive is in gigabyte (GB), i.e. 250GB
- Memory - aka RAM : This memory is provides very fast access to information that your computer needs in order to
carry out some operation. For example when you start a program, the most important and most used pieces of code is stored
in the RAM. This way when needed the computer does not have to wait for the hard drive to find the code. Memory also can not
be repaired, but can easily be replaced with a new memory stick. Memory comes
in many forms, formats, sizes and speeds. ie. PC2-4700 DDR2 533Mhz ECC.

determine what upgrades your computer can have. When it comes to motherboards, there are 1000s of different
