Frame Rack - To house and connect all hardware components.

Circuit Board - The main board which holds and connects all computer system hardware

Central Processing Unit (CPU) - A core microchip that Executes instructions and processes tasks.

Screen - Provides Visual Output Display.

Power Supply -

Read-only memory (ROM) - Semiconductor memory data that can only be READ and not written to. ROM is required for storing data that must be retained after the device is powered off.

OS - Operating System. Operating system software is constructed in the form of a hardware floppy disk.

Storage Module - Provides a set amount of storage on the terminal for additional files and software installations. Certain software have strict storage requirements in order to be installed on the OS.

Network Adapter - Required in order for the device to discover and be discovered on certain networks.

I/O Interface - A chip that allows the communication between a computer or device and the outside world, or typically, an I/O Controller.

Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) - Enables the ability to insert and install software via Diskette.

Cooling Fan - A simple fan that functions to keep hardware components cool. It is likely that hardware may fail or damage will occur when operating at too high of temperature.

Software - A wide range of software can be installed on the target terminal. This ranges from Economic trading software, to manufacturing automation systems.
