Advantages of Computer

Computer is a versatile device. It can be designed to do any kind of activity provided all data and instructions are made available to it in digital form. The important advantage of computer are:
1. High Speed
2. Accuracy
3. Storage Capability
4. Diligence
5. Versatile
6. Reliable
7. Automatic

› High Speed

Modern computers have incredible speed of processing. It takes only few seconds for calculations that we take hours to complete.Computers makes it possible to receive, supply and process large volumes of data at very high speed.
Computer speed is measured in units of millisecond (one thousandth of a second), microsecond (one millionth of a second), nanosecond (one billionth of a second) , and picosecond (one trillionth of a second).

› Accuracy

Computer can ensure consistently very high degree of accuracy in computations. It processes data according to the sequence of instructions . Hence, if input data and procedures are correct, the output will be consistently accurate.

› Storage Capability

The Computer has an in-built memory where it can store a large amount of data. You can also store data in secondary storage devices such as floppies, which can be kept outside your computer and can be carried to other computers.

› Diligence

A computer is free from tiredness, lack of concentration, fatigue, etc. It can work for hours without creating any error. If millions of calculations are to be performed, a computer will perform every calculation with the same accuracy. Due to this capability it overpowers human being in routine type of work.

› Versatile

It means the capacity to perform completely different type of work. You may use your computer to prepare payroll slips. Next moment you may use it for inventory management or to prepare electric bills.

› Reliable

A computer is a reliable machine. Every Modern electronic computer's components have long lives. Now Computers are designed to make maintenance easy.

› Automatic

Computer is an automatic machine. It can ability to perform the given task automatically. Once a program is given to computer i.e. stored in computer memory, the program and instruction can control the program execution without human interaction.
