Get to know the 3 Components of a Computer System

A computer system is a collection of technologies that are interconnected and interact to perform computational activities, such as processing data and conveying information to users.

In fact, this computer system consists of 3 components, namely hardware, software, and brainware.

Each of these three computer components has a different role but can create a unified computer system.


Hardware is hardware in physical form. The function of the hardware is as between the user and the computer system.

There are several examples of hardware components that are often used, such as mice, keyboards, monitors, CPUs, and so on.

Hardware consists of four main parts, namely input devices, output devices, processing devices, and storage devices, along with a complete explanation:

Input devices

Input device or input device is hardware that functions as a giver of orders into the computer system.

This input device can be said to be the entry gate for data to be processed in the computer. Examples of these input devices are mice, keyboards, webcams, and scanners.

Processing devices

Processing device is a device that can process data that has been entered from the input device and will then be processed into information.

Output devices

An output device is a device that can display the resulting data from a processing device in the form of images, video and sound. These output devices include monitors, printers, speakers, headphones.

Storage devices

This internal storage is the storage part that is in a CPU which consists of a hard disk and RAM. There is also a type of external storage that can be removed and does not have to be directly in the computer hardware to be able to use it.

This external storage can be carried anywhere so that it is practical to use, examples of external storage are external hard drives, DVD discs, memory cards, and flash drives.


Software is a computer component that is invisible to the naked eye. This device consists of programs that are tasked with processing data that is in the hardware.

This software is divided into three different parts, namely:

  • software sistem
  • software aplikasi
  • software tambahan

Software Sistem

Software sistem adalah perangkat lunak yang memiliki tugas dalam mengatur komponen kompuiter secara keseluruhan.

Komponen sistem ini termasuk dalam sistem operasi atau OS contohnya adalah OS Windows 10, MAC OS, Android, dan lain sebagainya.

Software Aplikasi

Software aplikasi adalah program aplikasi yang dapat digunakan pengguna dalam menyelesaikan tugas tertentu.

Software aplikasi ini adalah program pelengkap pada komputer yang digunakan sebagai pengolahan data. 

Adapun beberapa contoh dari software aplikasi yakni web browser, aplikasi office, game, antivirus, dan masih banyak lagi.

Software Tambahan

Software tambahan disini memiliki tugas untuk menjalankan tugas-tugas khusus dalam melindungi perangkat hardware atau lain sebagainya. Misalnya data recovery, backup, screensaver, dan disk defragmenter.


Berbeda dari hardware dan software yang menjadi salah satu sistem komputer itu sendiri, dimana brainware ini adalah pengguna komputer itu sendiri.

Ya sejatinya pengguna inilah yang berwenang dalam menjalankan dan mengoperasikan sistem komputer itu sendiri. tanpa adanya pengguna maka komputer tidak dapat beroperasi secara maksimal. Contoh brainware adalah programmer, operator, sistem analis, gamer, dan lain sebagainya.
