Is a computer a physical system or a conceptual system or both?
A computer is a physical system which works on conceptual basics. so you can say it's both.

Physical vs. Conceptual System . In physics the word system has a technical meaning, namely, it is the portion of the physical universe chosen for analysis. Everythin…g outside the system is known as the environment , which in analysis is ignored except for its effects on the system. The cut between system and environment is a free choice, generally made to simplify the analysis as much as possible. An isolated system is one which has negligible interaction with its environment.. Often a system in this sense is chosen to correspond to the more usual meaning of system , such as a particular machine. But physical systems are often more esoteric: an atom, the water in a lake, or indeed the water in the left-hand half of a lake can all be considered as physical systems. In the study of quantum decoherence the "system" may refer to the macroscopic properties of an object (e.g. the position of a pendulum bob), while the relevant "environment" may be the internal degrees of freedom , described classically by the pendulum's thermal vibrations.
depends on what you mean on computer system
A conceptual system is a system of non-tangible (or non-physical) objects, such as ideas or concepts. It is an abstract idea. It may be represented in language or symbology,… but those are representations of the conceptual system and not the system itself.. Physical systems are tangible (insofar as atoms, rainbows and other "untouchable" objects are tangible). A physical system can be observed, touched, or otherwise sensed by sapient beings. Therefore a rainbow, although it cannot be touched, is a physical system consisting of light rays/photons passing through suspended water vapor causing diffraction of white light into its colored components which can then be perceived or observed.
Conceptual systems do not involve the expense or effort of implementation. Conceptual systems are good for stimulating debate with out the need for a physical example. Con…ceptual systems are necessary where there are missing pieces or technology required to implement the system but some feature of the system needs to be discussed.

\nSee as we know that too much of working on computers restricts our physical development.As we work all day,we may suffer from various problems such as Chronic backache,Eye i…llusion,Muscular pain,Mental stress,Growth of body,etc.All this things happen due to continuous computing without any rest.And if we don't take proper care of ourselves we will only have to suffer.We must take proper precautions before it is too late.This is some ways in which computers restricts physical development.
The physical components that make up the computer The physical equipment of a computer system that you can touch?
The physical equipment of a computer system that you can touch arecalled computer hardware. To make a complete computer system,hardware has to work hand in hand with software.…

The physical view of MIS is the assembly of many subsystems basedon the organization's databases. While on the other hand,conceptual view is an overall view of all the organiz…ation'sdatabases.
No the physical components are the hardware. Software is the operating system (Windows, Linux) and appications such as Microsoft office. Think of the hardware as a tape deck…, and software as the cassette ;)
RAM - is fast, temporary memory. A hard-drive is slower, butpermanent. It's quicker for a computer to 'load' data into RAM,than to leave it on the hard-drive. Aditionally, all… data in RAM islost when the power is switched off. The data on a hard drive staysthere until it's wiped by the user.
RAM is non-persistent memory and data stored is lost after apowercycle. In order to put some useful data there, such as aprogram to load the operating system from the hard dis…k, come otherprogram must be stored somewhere such that it doesn't get lost whenyour computer is without power. Historically, this program was held in ROM. Today, these programsare held in any other type of non-volatile memory, most often flashmemory. Flash memory provides persistent data storage without power(up to at least 20 years in typical chips, often more). It isgenerally preferred over ROM because it its cheaper, and it iswriteable. The fact that it is writeable (data held in flash memorycan be modified) allows to update the system BIOS and bootstraploader program when an error is found. Flash memory is also cheaperthan ROM because ROM is a custom made device, where the datacontent is submitted to silicon as part of the chip manufactureprocess. In contrast, flash memory chips are generic chips whichcan be loaded with any data at a later stage.
