Computer Hardware teaches the basic functioning of a computer with a concentration on the machine level elements. It clearly explains the role of each of the parts involved in the computer make up and describes how the whole system ticks, without overwhelming the reader in minute detail. Aimed at introductory courses for computing undergraduates, Computer Hardware covers basic principles behind the design of modern computer systems.
