Question and answer
Q: Why are the central processing unit (CPU) and motherboard considered the brain and heart of a computer? Do you think these are good analogies? Why or why not?
A: Well without the motherboard, your computer would just be a box. This is pretty much correct, however, the reason why the motherboard is refereed to as the heart is because much like the heart in our body, it allows everything to function, [ a sort of gateway in which everything must run through to have life ]
