Computers offer users many advantages, including increased flexibility, speed, and access to a wealth of information. While there are some disadvantages to computers, mostly the positives far out weight the negatives. First, just think about the potential flexibility a computer gives us. Not only can people work on a computer, communicate on a computer, and shop on a computer, they can also access what they need any at any time. This is a life saver to people with kids who need to reserve parts of their day to spend with their children. In theory, people no longer are restricted to a 9 to 5 working day.
Second, computers make it much easier to store and access files. In the past, an institution such as a hospital would have whole rooms to hold what would probably be a very complicated filing system. They may even hire specific people to retrieve the files for them. Now people can access files and information at the click of a button, saving time, money, and energy.
