Course Overview
(Music) Hi everyone. I'm Dan Lachance, and welcome to my course, Computer Fundamentals: Hardware. There is so much computer hardware out there these days that sometimes it can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be that way. By understanding when specific hardware components should be used, you can better address computing needs efficiently. Some of the major topics that we're going to cover include input and output peripherals, cables and connectors, internal hardware components and storage, and finally, printing and multifunction printing devices. By the end of this course, you'll have the skills necessary to identify existing PC hardware components. You'll have the knowledge required to choose hardware that best suits computing needs. Finally, you'll know which type of printing is best suited for a given situation. I hope you'll join me to learn about Computer Fundamentals: Hardware, here at Pluralsight.
