Fast forward over ten (10) years later and more advances have been made; now we have very slick ultra slim light personal computers we call laptops and flat screen desktop computers with advanced CPU that can do tons of operations, multi-task successfully that it takes a lot of concentration and hard work for us to successfully manage our computer system.
