Parts and Components

Computer parts and components refer to many items which are used for building a computer or a laptop. Like any other machine a computer is also made up of multiple small parts and components and it’s the combined power of these components which allow a computer to perform its basic functions. Computer parts and components such as chargers, fans, batteries, hard disk drives, KVM switches, computer memory, motherboards, optical drives, processors, power supplies, pointing devices, solid state devices, graphic cards, sound cards etc. are necessary for a computer as a lack or malfunction in even a single of these components can affect the functionality of a computer.

Although, the term charger is specifically used to refer to an adapter which charges an internal battery of a computer and as such mainly refers to chargers used by laptop and tablet computers.

  4. Chassis
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Computer chassis refers to the body of a system block which is usually made of special electrogalvanized, cold rolled, coil steel and contain all the main components of a computer such as a processor, motherboard, graphic card, sound cards etc.

  5. Climate Control
    - 1 Supplier 2 Products

    Climate control applications are used in a wide number of fields including agriculture, technology, transportation systems, emergency & disaster relief, event services and exploration to create and maintain desired temperatures. They are also commonly used domestically in refrigerators and outdoor green houses.

  6. Computer Batteries
    - 1 Supplier 1 Product

    Most portable computers and laptops use batteries as these are often used in places without a continuous power supply and are mainly designed for outdoor use. Lithium-ion batteries are primarily used in most types of laptops. Battery backup of a battery largely depends on the type of battery, laptop and different activities can decrease or increase the battery backup.

  11. Enclosures
    - 5 Suppliers 403 Products

    Enclosures used to describe materials and casings that protect or connect computer components (referred to as a motherboard or server) whilst keeping them all in a centralised location and connected to a power supply. Types of enclosures includes casings like full tower, mid tower, server racks, data racks, speciality racks, mini tower, desktop case, slim line case and small form factor case.

  12. Fans and Blowers
    - 3 Suppliers 261 Products

    Fans are used in all types of desktop computers, laptops and workstations for cooling the heat generated by various computer parts such as processor or graphic card. During normal computing temperatures are often at around 50-60 degree Celsius and can even reach around 100 degree Celsius for computing intensive applications.

  13. Graphics Cards
    - 1 Supplier 10 Products

    Graphic cards have become a norm rather than being an exception in most modern computers. Graphic cards come with their own video memory which reduces the pressure on computer ram during video or graphic processing. Most modern gaming computers, gaming desktops and workstations come with a discrete or integrated graphic card.

  14. Hard Disk Drives
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Hard disk drives act as the main storage of a computer and laptop as these devices are responsible for storing and retrieving data or information. Unlike computer memory these devices don’t delete data once the power is switched off and as such can store data for many years.

  15. Housings
    - 0 Suppliers 0 Products

    Housing is used to describe materials and casings that protect or connect computer components (referred to as a motherboard) whilst keeping them all in a centralised location and connected to a power supply. Housing is also referred to as casing, tower, computer chassis, base unit, system unit, cabinet, base unit, or cabinet.

  16. KVM Switches
    - 0 Suppliers 3 Products

    KVM switches are essential to functioning of data centres as these allow a person to control multiple computers from a single or multiple keyboards, video monitors and mice. Indeed, the acronym KVM stands for Keyboard, video and mouse.
