Hard Drive

Inside the hard drive the disk (which is covered in tiny magnets)

spins and the metal arm floats above it.

The arm moves around to different parts of the disk

where data is stored and retrieved. The disk and the

arm generally move very quickly, but nowhere near

as fast as the CPU can process data. For this reason

all the data must be moved to RAM before it can be processed.
