Computer Guide Part 3
Hard Drives

When you install a program (and its files), or create a file, you need hard drive space to store those files. The more hard drive space that you have, the more programs you can have installed, and the more pictures, letters, emails, sounds and other files you can store on your computer.

Hard drive size is measured in gigabytes (GB) and terabytes (TB). The more hard drive space that you have (i.e. 500GB), the more files and programs you can store on your computer.
Hard drive speed is measured in RPM. Most current hard drives usually have speeds of 5400 RPM or 7200 RPM.
