RAM stands for Random Access Memory and can be considered your “use right now” computer memory, much like a briefcase or purse holds things you will expect to need or use “right now” or in the near future. Suitcases and filing cabinets, on the other hand, store things for retrieval later and figuratively represents the total storage capacity of your hard drive.

ROM or Read-Only Memory, on the other hand, pertains to files you or your computer system can read for instructions or operating parameters, but you cannot change any of the data. ROM is included in the total hard drive capacity but does not influence how much of the “right now” memory or RAM your system provides.
