Hardware and Software
When it comes to hardware and software, the old adage that ‘you get what you pay for’ is undoubtedly true.
Hardware and software are the two components that make up a computer system. Hardware refers to the physical components that make up a computer, such as the central processing unit (CPU), memory (RAM), and storage (hard drive or solid-state drive). Software, on the other hand, refers to the programs and operating systems that run on the hardware and provide the functionality of the computer. Without hardware, software would have no platform to run on, and without software, the hardware would have no purpose. Both hardware and software are essential for a computer system to function, and the interaction between them enables a wide range of applications and tasks to be performed.
Non-branded computer equipment may initially be appealing because of its low price, but in our experience it can often cost you dearly in the long run. For this reason, Fusion always recommends durable, branded computer equipment.
