Alright, I'm pretty sure I figured this out:

CPU is used mainly as space to run programs.

Memory is the space programs take up, and is used to run programs.

Bandwidth affects speed of downloads and uploads.

I have no idea of what hard drives do however. I've upgraded them but found no benefit.

Please correct me if any of this is wrong.

Hmmmm.....

Hard Drives store files.

CPU is the power that drives programs.

RAM stores programs that are running.

Bandwidth is how fast you can transfer files between servers.

You may not be noticing a difference if you're relatively new because most programs don't take up much hard drive space at all until they are upgraded quite a bit, with a few exceptions, such as the Robber Baron.

Click on "Software Types" on the left hand column of your window. You'll see data such as this:

Quote
File Share Virus     Uses the host bandwidth and some CPU for sharing files and generating income. Has to be collected on the host.     250     10000     50     3276800000

CPU - Amount of CPU used while running. (In this case 250 MHz)
Memory - Amount of RAM used while running. (In this case 10,000 kb or approximately 10 Mb.)
Bandwidth - Amount of Bandwidth used while running. (In this case 50 kbs.)
Size bytes - Amount of space taken up on Hard Drive. (In this case 3 Gb.)


A little clearer?

I'm not new, I just haven't played since the last Revelation virus. Personally I thought there had been a change or something.

That clears it up, I just thought the name of game hardware differed from their real life counterparts by a whole world.

Oh, well, then, no. I wasn't sure, though if you weren't jerking me around even.  laugh
