    I'm doing computer science tho so it would be kinda embarrassing if I didn't feel confident using one.

    Not so difficult if you do the research and know how to put together a computer. Mostly the problems you may get are getting incompatible hardware because you didn't research it or not being able to fit it into the case you got.

    Basically these. I've built and dismantled a fair few machines myself. Going into Forensic Computing so it's pretty important that I know what I'm doing. I'd be comfortable doing anything I'd be expected to do normally and a whole host of other stuff that won't come up everyday.

    That said using a computer is pretty ambiguous. Using for what exactly? Using means different things to different people. For some it may mean turning it on, writing some emails, browsing Facebook and that's it. For others it may (and most likely will) mean something completely different.

    Ask me to do any standard task like writing documents, web browsing, etc. Simple

    Ask me to troubleshoot, get rid of viruses and so on. Usually pretty straightforward

    Ask me to use a computer to write a hefty program in C++. I've got some programming experience so I'd give it a go. Not gonna be pretty though

    Ask me to navigate around a Linux based systems using solely a terminal. It'll be tough (for now)

    Ask me to configure a network. Don't have a whole lot of experience so it'll be pretty basic.

    They're all examples of using a computer but for some I'd describe myself as a novice and others an expert.

    For what purpose? I can take a laptop to pieces, use word and I'm excellent at finding internet porn but I can't code anything to save my life.

    Too vague, brah.
