7. Outline the distinguishing characteristics of micro, mini and mainframe computers in terms of costs, hardware and software capacities and types of application. 28 CHAPTER 2 THE WHO, WHAT, AND WHY OF COMPUTERS Although reliable official statistics are not available, the best estimate is that computer hardware accounts for 15 per cent of the UK's annual investment in plant and equipment and that in the UK one home in five now contains a personal computer. More important, in the face ofworldwide stagnancy and even decay in trade and production, expenditure by business and domestic users on computers is likely to grow at a rate of about 15 per cent per annum until the end of the decade.

Similarly, the computer will accumulate the weight of passengers' luggage, both to ensure that the 47 aircraft is not overloaded, but mainly to compute the weight of additional cargo that can be carried on board up to the safe load limit.
