RAM and ROM
  1. RAM stands for Random Access Memory
    1. Volatile
      1. RAM is a fast temporary type of memory in which programs, applications and data are stored. Here are some examples of what's stored in Ram:
        1. The operating system
          1. applications
            1. the graphical user interface (GUI)
              1. If a computer loses power, all data stored in its RAM is lost
            2. ROM stands for Read-Only Memory
              1. Non-Volatile
                1. ROM is memory that cannot be changed by a program or user. ROM retains its memory even after the computer is turned off. For example, ROM stores the instructions for the computer to start up when it is turned on again.
