Input Process Output Devices
The invention of the computer has had a huge impact on our day-to-day lives, and they are now present everywhere - at home, at work and in education.
The way in which we access computers is usually through an Input device
An input device is any piece of computer hardware

When a computer receives data from an input device (e.g., keyboard), the data goes through an intermediate stage before it's sent to an output device (e.g., monitor). A processing device is any device in a computer that handles the intermediate stage of processing the incoming data.
Some of the most common processing devices in a computer include the following:
in the diagram below, we can see that the CPU is the processing device in the input, processing, output diagram.
