Object information

Sending, receiving, and storing information


Dursley family

A computer is a Muggle machine designed to interpret and carry out a string of operations inputted by the user, and is used to store and receive information, as well as for recreation (e.g. Internet, videogames etc) .[1] The Dursleys owned a computer, which Dudley Dursley often played games on.[2] It is possible that computers are a Muggle invention that cannot be fully duplicated with magic.[3]

Computers are one of numerous devices that do not work in magical environments such as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry because they are powered by electricity.[4]
