The Atari ST was a strong competiter to the ibm 5150 it used a moteroller 680000which had a 16bit internal bus whal the rest of the components where where 32bit, it came with 512k of ram and 1 3½ inch floppy drive



The history of the personal computer



The playstation 2 was as the name sugests was the scond in playstations line. by definition this is a computer but the general publick thinls otherwise. It uses Soney's own proprietary CPU an undisclosed amount and type of RAM. it coud display in 240i and used Sony's Proprietary Dule shock controler.

The Amega 3000 was the therd relese in the Amega Family it incoperated the 32bit moteroler 68030 and had 2 MB of ram. the Amega 3000 also had a 40MB hard disk.

The Motherboard is the main circuit board for the computer, containing both soldered, nonremovable components along with sockets or slots for components that can be removed.The Central Processing Unit (CPU) is the "brain" of the computer. It executes instructions (from software) and tells other components what to do.Random Access Memory (RAM), also known as Main Memory or Primary Storage, is used to hold instructions and data while they are being used. RAM is volatile, meaning its contents are lost when the power goes off.hard disk is similar to a floppy disk but uses metal platters to store information. Hard disks are not only much faster than floppy disks but can hold huge amounts of data (hundreds of gigabytes).CD-ROM stands for Compact Disc - Read Only Memory.
