The quick service we expect at the bank , at the grocery store , on the stock exchange , and on the Internet are dependent on the speed of computer . The speed of a computer is measured in the following time unit for the access time or instructions per second .

Milliseconds 1ms =  a thousand of a second

Microseconds  1ms =  a thousand millionths of a second

Nano second 1ns =  a thousand million secondth

Pico secondss  1 ps =  a millions millionth of a second

Kips = kilo instructions per second

MIPS =  million instructions per second

1 Accuracy and Reliability ;   computer are quite accurate and extremely  reliable as well . They are only a machine and do not make errors on their own . Error are caused by human not by computer .

2 high storage capacity :  computer are capable of storing enormous amount of data that must be located and retrieve very quickly . The capability to store and retrieve volume of data is the core of the information age .
