Computer Glossary
Computer Glossary Terms

64-Bit Processing: Refers to how much data can be processed in one piece (in this case, 64 bits). Some modern software may require 64-bit processing to run.

App store: A digital distribution platform for software. You may be familiar with the app store on your phone or tablet, but many operating systems are now incorporating them right into computers as well. This allows you to download applications, or apps, sometimes for free and sometimes for a fee. Apps will vary by store, operating system, and manufacturer.

Bit/Byte: A bit is the smallest unit of measurement for electronic data. Eight bits equals one byte; approximately 1,000 bytes equals one kilobyte (KB); 1,000 kilobytes equals one megabyte (MB); 1,000 megabytes equals one gigabyte (GB); and 1,000 gigabytes equals one terabyte (TB). These units determine how much information your computer can store and retrieve. When it comes to hard drives, the higher the gigabytes and terabytes, the more storage space you have.

Bluetooth: A form of wireless communication allowing devices to communicate with each other. For example, a Bluetooth keyboard or mouse might be compatible with a computer or tablet, allowing these components to be used wirelessly.

Blu-ray: A high-definition optical disc used for movies and some video games. Unlike DVDs, Blu-rays are capable of full HD 1920x1080p video. Blu-rays can hold 50GB of data, over five times the capacity of a DVD.

Burn: To record data on a CD, DVD, or Blu-ray disc.

Bus Speed: Measured in megahertz (MHz), bus speed is the speed or frequency at which the data on the motherboard is moving.

Chipset: A set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manages the data flow between the processor, memory, and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer.

Cloud storage: Allows data to be stored virtually in storage space hosted by a third party, as opposed to on your physical hard drive. Cloud storage can be advantageous because it may make it easy to share information across devices or among users, as well as freeing up your own physical hard drive space.

DDR (Double Data Rate): A type of SDRAM (memory) that supports data transfers that effectively doubles the speed of the RAM. Double data rate type three (written DDR3), which is currently in use, is twice as fast as its predecessor, and faster is better!

Desktop: A personal computer intended for use in a single location (not surprisingly, this is typically a desk), as opposed to portable computers. Desktops may consist of a tower, monitor, keyboard, and mouse (sometimes with certain components sold separately). There's been a rise in popularity of all-in-one desktops, which integrate the technical components into a flat-screen monitor for a sleeker design that takes up less space.

Digital Media: Can refer to the places where digital files are stored (memory cards, hard drives) or the files themselves (photos, videos, MP3s).

DVD (Digital Video Disc): Stores and plays both audio and video. Stores about 25 times more information than a CD. DVDs and CDs can be played and burned on a DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive or DVD+/-RW drive. A drive that does all of these things is sometimes referred to as a SuperMulti drive or burner. Dual-layer DVD drives allow you to burn about twice as much information onto a dual-layer DVD.

Ethernet: A wired Internet connection. While ethernet connections don't allow for the portability and convenience of Wi-Fi, they can sometimes result in faster download and upload speeds, making them advantageous in certain situations.

Expansion Slot: A slot set aside on a computer's motherboard where you can "expand" your computer functions by installing expansion cards. This can be used to add memory, graphics capabilities, or support for special devices.

Firewall: This hypothetical "wall" is actually a piece of software that protects a private computer from unauthorized access via the Internet. It prevents other computers from accessing your computer while you're online.

Graphics Card: Also called a video card. When installed in a computer, it permits the computer to display pictures. It can either be built into the motherboard or exist separately, and in some computers can be upgraded using an expansion slot.

Hard Drive: A storage device typically measured in gigabytes or terabytes (either internal or external to a computer's system unit) that holds large amounts of data. It's the "memory box" of the computer where files like documents and photos are stored.

Hardware: The physical components of a computer system, such as the monitor, keyboard, tower, or notebook.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface): The uncompressed, all-digital standard used for high-definition (HD) quality for consumer electronics and PC products using a single cable (an HDMI cable). Generally, HDMI cables are used to connect HD devices (Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, HD DVRs) to an HDTV or monitor.

Hertz (Hz): A unit of frequency equal to one cycle per second.

High Definition: Means that the screen will be "widescreen" and at least twice as clear as standard definition (which is 480 horizontal lines). Generally, anything at 720 or more horizontal lines will be considered HD; 1920x1080 resolution refers to Full HD; and 4K (or 4,000) horizontal lines refers to Ultra HD.

Hyper-threading Technology: A feature of some Intel processors, hyper-threading may improve your computer's ability to multitask (though not as much as a multi-core processor does). It's particularly helpful for some heavy-duty applications, like zipping and unzipping files, playing 3D games, or using professional editing programs.

I/O Ports (Input/Output): The connectors on a PC that connect its external devices; examples include USB, HDMI, and VGA ports.

LAN (Local Area Network): A set of devices, such as computers, printers, or video games, physically or wirelessly connected for interactive communications wirelessly or through ethernet connections.

LCD (Liquid Crystal Display): A type of display that uses standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. Unlike LEDs, they don't produce their own light.

LED backlighting: A way of producing light in LCD screens, resulting in a much clearer, brighter, better-looking display.

Level 2 Cache: Often written as "L2 cache," this is a type of memory capable of high-speed storage, enabling quick access to the most recently used data and instructions.

Lithium-ion/lithium-polymer: A light, rechargeable battery often used in portable electronics such as notebooks and smartphones.

Memory: The place where a computer keeps programs and data. This could refer to the hard drive, RAM, or cache.

Memory Card Reader: A device that accesses data on a memory card, such as an SD card.

Motherboard: A computer's main circuit board. It's the central, essential part of a computer to which most other integrated parts are connected.

Multi-touch: A touchscreen or touchpad, sometimes referred to as multi-gesture, that recognizes two or more fingers, incorporating advanced functionality like pinching to zoom.

Network Card: A network card, network adapter, network interface controller, network interface card, or LAN adapter is a computer hardware component designed to allow computers to communicate over a computer network. It allows users to connect to each other wirelessly or by using cables.

Operating System (OS): Software that takes care of basic system activities such as reading forms and saving to disk. It controls how system resources are used and provides a user interface. Commonly used computer operating systems are Windows, Mac OS, and Linux.

Portable computer: A computer with a rechargeable battery that can be used wirelessly and incorporates necessary elements for use (display, keyboard, etc.) into one piece of hardware that opens while in use and closes when not. Notebooks (also called laptops) are probably the most common types of portable computers. Other examples are netbooks (generally smaller than notebooks, lacking optical drives and lighter on features) and Chromebooks (which don't have a sizable hard drive but use online Cloud storage).

Processor: Also known as the CPU (central processing unit). As the primary element carrying out the computer's functions, it's effectively the "brain" of the computer. A dual-core processor has two execution cores, while a quad-core has four, etc; generally, more cores allows for faster computing.

Processor Speed: The rate at which the CPU performs calculations per second. It's measured in megahertz (MHz) or gigahertz (GHz). 1000MHz equals one GHz.

RAM (Random Access Memory): The place where a computer keeps programs and data when they are in use. It's measured in megabytes or gigabytes (see bit/byte for more info).

Retina display: A type of LCD screen specific to a newer-model Apple® MacBook Pro®, iPad®, iPhone®, and iPod®. Retina displays have a high enough pixel density that the human eye is unable to notice pixelation at a typical viewing distance. Basically, Retina displays are clearer than typical LCDs, making everything look really pretty.

SATA (Serial ATA): A way of connecting a hard drive to a computer. Most computers made after 2005 use SATA hard drives, which is generally faster and more efficient than SATA's predecessor, PATA.

Screen Resolution: Maximum number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. This number is a product of the number of columns and the number of rows. For example, a monitor with a 1920x1080 resolution can display 1,920 columns of pixels and 1,080 rows of pixels. The higher the resolution, the clearer the screen; see high definition for more info.

Security lock slot: An anti-theft system incorporated into some computers. It is used for attaching a lock-and-cable apparatus, in particular those from Kensington.

Software: The actual programs on a computer, as opposed to the physical components. This includes applications (Word, Excel) and the operating system itself (Windows 8, Mac OS® X).

Solid-state drive (SSD): Like a standard hard drive, a solid-state drive is used to store data. However, SSDs read and write files much more quickly, resulting in better performance overall. Hybrid drives combine the standard features of hard disk drives and solid-state drives, resulting in a more optimal performance than a hard drive alone at a better price than a large SSD.

Sound card: A piece of computer hardware that controls its sound input and output.

TFT (Thin Film Transistor): A type of LCD flat-panel display that is made to be as thin and light as possible, taking up less space than bulky old-school computer monitors. TFT displays also generally have higher resolutions than older displays.

Touchpad: A pointing device used on many notebook PCs. You move the pointer onscreen by moving your finger over the touchpad.

Touchscreen: A display you can interact with by touching it with an object, typically a finger or stylus. Capacitive touchscreens are very responsive to finger touches, allowing easy swiping, which generally results in an intuitive user interface; however, they won't respond to a gloved hand or stylus. Resistive touchscreens, on the other hand, can typically be used with a finger or stylus, but require pressure to be applied to the screen, which can sometimes affect ease of use.

USB (Universal Serial Bus): A high-speed serial port technology that allows a variety of input and output devices to be easily attached to a PC. A USB device can be plugged in or unplugged without turning off the PC and is automatically recognized and configured upon plug-in. Typically, modern computers will have USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or some combination of the two. On paper, USB 3.0 is faster, though how much faster will depend on other factors, like your hardware.

Webcam: The term webcam is a combination of "web" and "video camera." They can be used for video chatting or recording videos, and are built into most modern computers; older computers required an external webcam accessory.

WiDi: This Intel-developed technology is short for Wireless Display, and lets users to stream music, movies, photos, videos, and apps wirelessly from a compatible computer to a compatible HDTV or through the use of an adapter with other HDTVs. WiDi technology is capable of Full HD 1080p video and 5.1 surround sound audio, though you'll need the appropriate hardware to achieve that.

Wi-Fi: Wireless networking technology that uses radio waves to provide wireless high speed Internet and network connections.

E222371 - HP 11.6" Alex Herchcovitch 4GB RAM 500GB HD w/ Sleeve & Mouse 4.1 5 59 59
Poor internal workmanship Flimsy plastic internal components. Metal screws into weak plastic parts. Falling apart in less than 5 months. Will not buy another HP. 03-25-13
Relieved When I first saw this lap top on clearance I was skeptical. I really couldn't decided and then it was gone. I told my husband "it wasn't meant to be" and continued to look at laptops for return to college. A week later it was back on the site! I hurried up and ordered it but was still concerned that it would not suit my needs. I was so wrong. I very very pleased with my purchase. I use it on my home wifi and I have had no issues at all in the week I have been playing the laptop. I love that it is a sophisticated feminine as opposed to something pink and fluffy as I am already in the mental health field and want to remain looking professional. I would buy this HP again in a heartbeat. 01-31-13
so sad really wanted to be happy with this computer...but sadly back it goes..never got the mouse to work..keyboard way to stiff for heavy usage.. hands started hurting..loved the size for travel and it is so nice looking and so i really wanted to be happy with it.. but it is very slow and seems to have a temperament of it's own and not a nice one at that.. i'm sad to send it back 01-17-13
More problems than I can mention! This computer is totally adorable in appearance and I had high hopes for it. I had problems with it from the beginning; the mouse wouldn't work properly, very hard to control, difficult to operate. The screen is always going from smaller to bigger on it's own...like it zooms itself in and out . Tons of glitches. The keyboard locks up constantly and random things come up on the screen that I have NOT selected. It just goes crazy like has a mind of it's own. Never seen anything quite like it. I have had system errors and countless ridiculous things appearing on the screen out of nowhere, similar to the kind I had with computers that were about to crash after several years and this thing is brand new! YUCK. I didn't want to return it but I am disgusted with it. I have owned lots of computes from all different manufacturers and this one is possibly the worst performing, slowest computer I've ever purchased. There is no way it will last past my easy pay payments! UGH! Horrible disappointment. A Lemon. 01-01-13
Love It! I've had this laptop for a few months and it's great. It's much faster than the Acer Aspire One it replaced. The sound is very good. I am not sure what speed others expect from such a small computer. I cannot comment on the mouse as I don't use it. I was thrilled to be able to use MS Word and Excel after being stuck with MS Works for a while. The Starter editions of these programs are fine. Lack of a DVD drive is not a problem for me. It easily connected to my wireless printer. It's also pretty, which is just an added bonus. 12-29-12
pretty doesnt make up for its quality I am usually a very rational, and frugal person when it comes to purchasing especially expensive items. But unfortunately i saw this cute laptop with its unique embellishment and it being an Hp laptop, I assumed this would be a good laptop to start with for college. FAIl. Three times my keyboard has locked, the computer has logged of, or shut down on me several times, its extremely slow at times. Now as im internally punching myself in the head for buying this laptop. Im looking to return it, save some extra more money to buy another laptop that can actually withstand the workload of a colege student, most likely an product from Apple. Grr im so frustrated. Rant over. 12-20-12
Really Wanted To like it My husband bought this for me to replace my computer that crashed. My last computer had windows 7 as well. I REALLY wanted to like this computer but I cant. Its being sent back. Its VERY SLOW when you are trying to view pictures ect. It freezes (facebook is where it freezes the most) I find the display not good either I cant find a happy place its either to bright or not bright enough. My view is If its doing all this within the first 3 weeks what will be happening in 3 or 6 months NOPE Its Going Back! :( 12-15-12
glad I bought it I really love my HP. I have not had any problems with anything. It works great for me. I surf the web mostly and do things like shop at QVC. It is also a very pretty computer. 12-12-12
Wish I Had Bought An Apple or Dell! This may be the first negative review I have written, but here goes. I am just not impressed with this HP product. As several others have also said, this computer hangs frequently and also seems very slow as compared to my old Dell computer, also purchased from QVC. The keyboard felt fine, although a little small. The mouse does not work well at all. I am in the process of sending this back. It is just too costly a product to not be satisfied with the performance. The design is beautiful, but I am going to stick with Apple or Dell for my replacement (I love my Apple IPAD 2)! 12-10-12
HP Fan Club Member! I love HP products and I have been using this little cutie for a month or so. I am rating 4 stars because although it is good, I find that I enjoy my 17" HP lap top better. Pros: Size is convenient, it is lightweight, and will fit in any of my oversized purses. Start up is amazingly fast, and I find myself on the Web quickly with very little wait time. Likewise, Internet use is also relatively swift. It is lovely to look at and I enjoy utilizing the Alex Herchocovitch screen saver~Impressive looking as I use this unit for my small business meetings. Great sound, also with the included Beats audio. I like the mat finish of the touchpad, as I abhor using a mouse. Good texture on keyboard surfaces. Cons: Sometimes freezes during applications for no apparent reason. Fonts are small, although you can enlarge two ways by application as well as pinching the touchpad...When you do this, however, you lose part of your screen due to the magnification. I miss my numeric keypad, as having to enter numbers from the top is a bummer. I also miss not having an internal optical drive...But I knew this before I purchsed. I have purchased an external one so that I can pair with my HP wireless printer and other cd/dvd uses. So, overall, I would say this is a good little pc and I would not hesitate to recommend given the above exceptions. It's workable, convenient, and a very good value for the price. 11-30-12
ADORABLE, BUT TOO SLOW Wanted this little laptop so bad because it is so pretty & I was so ready to love it! It just can't handle much of anything. Was getting sick of waiting for the spinning to stop just to find out that it can't or won't connect to the site. We have 2 other smaller similar laptops/netbooks & they handle all that this hp couldn't. Got so bad that I wanted to just throw it out the window! lol...had to return. Might be perfect for a younger child that is just starting out w/ the computer, but not for someone that wants a smaller back up laptop to travel w/ or bring into other rooms instead of lugging the larger one. I will probably look into a tablet, maybe an ipad. This one is just too frustrating. But...the design is GORGEOUS! 11-17-12
Perfect I bought this laptop for my 12 year old daughter. She loves it ! It is the perfect size for her. 11-12-12
