It is easy to know the hardware on your computer. Here are ways to find out what hardware is on your computer.

1) If you have a computer with Windows operating system use one of these.

i) Click on windows icon -> open start -> click open device specification.

This first method is not detailed, try the second one to get more information on what hardware you have on your computer.

ii) Right click on the start menu ->click device manager -> review the categories by expanding each one.

2) For a computer with mac operating system: click on Apple menu -> click on about Mac -> click system report -> open hardware ->expand the category you like to view.

If you're on a Windows Operating System:

-Open Start
-Open Settings
-Click System
-Click About
-Scroll to Device Specifications
-Review your computers specs

The above won't give you an in-depth description, if you'd like more information than what is there, consider trying this:

-Right click on the Start Menu
-Click on Device Manager
-Explore each category that you're curious about by double clicking on it.
