This is a wonderful site if you are interested in learning about a personal
computer. It discusses its components, storage, multimedia, input/output, and
communications. It also provides vivid pictures of the different parts of the
computer to give you a better understanding of the computer. One thing I really
liked is the fact that the site is continually updated. There is even an
update page so you can see what has been updated. Technology is always
changing--so you must update websites that deal with it. I feel that this is a
great site for those wanting to learn about PC's, even though it can get a
little more technical than one might want.

Technical Remarks:

Part of the site is restricted unless you purchase a license to use it which is
not that expensive. There is enough free information that the general user will
really not need to purchase a license. Any of the highlighted words that you
click on will require that you purchase a license. All information is laid out
clearly. It does take a little time for the pages to load if you are using a
dial-up connection.

Very well laid out. Good history. It is a bit long for only wanting quick
information. Take a while to read everyhting. Full of information though

Technical Remarks:

It looks to get as deep as you need without needing 10 college degrees to
