三、Text(课文)The Computer System

    A computer system includes both hardware and software.

    Hardware consists of the physical components and all associated equipment——integrated circuits,printed circuit boards,cables,power supplies(电源s),memory,and terminals(中断s)——rather than(而不是) abstract ideas or instructions.You can see them,touch them,and feel them.

                associate |əˈsəʊʃɪeɪt,-sɪeɪt| verb 联系起来、与有关系

                equipment |ɪˈkwɪpmənt| noun 器械、设备

    The basic organization of a computer hardware system consists of an input device,an output device,memory,and a Central Processing Unit(CPU)(输入输出、内存、中央处理器四部分).

    Software,in contrast,can not be seen,touched or felt.It is a series of instructions that guide a computer through(完成) some process.Software products may be divided into four basic types:application programs(应用程序),programming language processors(程序语言处理器),operating systems(操作系统),and system utilities(系统工具).

                series |ˈsɪəriːz| noun 一系列、一套 

    Application programs allow you to perform such tasks as solving statistical(统计的) problems,keeping(维护) your company’s account books(账本) or playing s computer game.

                solve |sɒlv| v 解开、解、破解、解决

                statistical |stəˈtɪstɪkl| adj 统计的

    Programming languages processors are programs that support that use of a computer language(使用某种计算机语言) on a computer system(在一个计算机上). They are tools which are used for the development of application programs.

    Operating systems are control programs that manage hardware and software resources and enable(e nable) you to run application programs.

    System utilities are special programs that enhance the usefulness(可用性) and capabilities(性能) of a computer.

                capability |ˌkeɪpəˈbɪləti| noun 能力、才能

    It is possible to be familiar with(熟悉) various aspects of computer software without being concerned about the details of how the computer’s hardware operates.It is also possible to design various components of the system’s hardware without knowledge of the computer software that will run on it.However,if you are concerned with computer architecture,you should have a knowledge of both hardware and software,because these two parts of the system are closely related to each other.

                aspect |ˈæspekt| noun 部分、方面

                concern |kənˈsɜːn| v 有关、担忧、牵扯

                design |dɪˈzaɪn| v 设计
