A Barebone PC might not only have the necessary hardware for the unit to function but the software as well, including an operating system, such as Windows or Linux, or Android these days. The basic features includes the hard disk, RAM, power supply (SMPS), motherboard and in some cases the video card as well. The options like mouse and keyboard are used to enter the information and commands to the machine.
