How Computers Work, Millenium Edition takes this already successful title one step further. While the book shows the reader how chips, software, memory, and hardware work using detailed four-color drawings, an animated, full-color CD-ROM takes them directly inside their computer. Contents of the CD include detailed descriptions and guided tours of every part of the computer from mouse and keyboard to monitor, processor and hard drive. The CD also contains source material, interviews and articles from editors at PC Computing, PC Week and other popular computer magazines. The book is completely updated and revised to include the latest technology developments including the Internet, multimedia sound and video, Pentium III/Xeon//Celeron processors, DVD drives, digital cameras, color printing, Y2K, and even ebooks.
