How does a Computer Work?

The following two videos describe how a computer works and the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). They complement Chapter 1 of the textbook. There will not be any questions directly about the contents of Chapter 1 in the test, but it is helpful for this class, and in Life, if you understand the basics of how a computer works.

If you are interested in building your own PC, I recommend watching the video tutorials. As you'll see, building a PC is just a matter of buying your parts (CPU, RAM, motherboard, case, etc.) and then plugging them together. Its lots of fun. I made mine super-silent.
