How do computers benefit our lives?

Expert Answers

Computers are a benefit to us in so many ways.  I will look at two of those ways.

First, they give us information and allow us to use that information.  We can get on the internet and find all sorts of information on any topic.  We can use word processors or spreadsheets to do things with the information that we find.

Second, they allow us to communicate with others easily.  Email and things like Skype have made it easy for us to get in contact with other people even if they are far away from us.

By giving us access to more information and the ability to communicate with others easily, computers have benefited our lives tremendously.
