A processing device relates to the CPU of a computer, or any device which processes information on its system. Computers are programmable machines that are made to both automatically and sequentially process different operations. The process can be manipulated to change the order of the sequence, which allows the computer to address other problems at the same time. They generally include some form of memory holder, meaning that the user can store data and information on the system, with one aspect of the memory carrying out the sequences whilst the other stores the chosen information.

The computer has a processing unit which executes a series of instructions that allow it to read, alter and store mass amounts of data, depending on the size of the memory on the computer. The first electronic computers were created in the middle of the 20th century, evolving from computer that were the size of full large rooms to the tiny laptops and handheld devices that we enjoy today. The older models were known to take up as much power as hundreds of modern PCs operating at once today.

The computers of today are based on integrated circuits, making them up to a billion times more effective and capable than the former machines. They also take up much less space with this. Some simpler computers can now be fit into devices that are the size of mobile phones and mobile computers that are fueled by batteries no bigger than a credit card.

Almost everyone in the modern world owns, or has access to a computer and, with that, access to the internet. The internet is of paramount importance to businesses and communications in today's society, meaning that people can have constant contact with people all over the world, accessing information in a matter of seconds with the use of evolved search engines like Google.
