Having grown up in an age when, if you wanted to use a computer, you wrote a program and queued for a terminal, I find I'm hopelessly out of date, in terms of modern computing "nuts and bolts". Can anyone suggest a book or website I could use, to get myself "a bit up to speed" in reasonably basic terms. I have been researching a new laptop, but find myself forever running to Wikipaedia, to explain the teminology. I would be a lot happier actually learning the terminology. One can get a definition of terms like, for instance "overclocking",or "BIOS", but actually understanding ....?

With a Moden Computer its not much different to what you have just done. You typed a post and started this thread. You do not need to know about the innards unless you are wanting to build your own PC etc
