  1. Hardware is the stuff you can touch and physically handle. Software is the programs and applications that run on the hardware. Software media such as disks and programmed chips are more rightly called Firmware (because it is neither hard nor soft) Main components of Hardware are the computer box itself (which will contain many components that make up the computer like the memory, storage, the processor and graphics/sound generators) connected to the computer box will be devices that provide input, such as keyboards, mice, scanners, digitizing tablets, cameras, microphones etc, as well as output devices like monitors, printers, speakers etc to set up a basic computer you need at least a computer box with an attached keyboard and mouse and a monitor for display.
