C.3 Desktops


Desktop computers (sometimes referred to as personal computers) are designed to meet regular general purpose computational needs at a single location such as on or near a desk or table. Desktop computers, unlike handheld computers, generally require more power to support peripherals such as disks and monitors. Consequently, even though Desktop computers can be moved their power requirements make them cumbersome. A desktop's peripherals include: one or more monitors, internal and external disks, mice, printers, and oftentimes Wired Network Ethernet connections. A stereotypical configuration generally comprises a case housing the power supply, a Motherboard with a Central Processing Unit (CPU); a keyboard and mouse for input; a computer monitor; speakers; and usually a printer for output. The case may be horizontally or vertically oriented, placed underneath, beside, or on top of a desk.
