Hardware is the electronic and mechanical parts of a computer system; for example, the central processing unit, disk drive, screen, and printer.

Software are the programs used with a computer. A distinction is made between systems software, or those programs that control the functioning of the computer itself, and applications software, which is designed to serve a particular specialized function.
