Metals in Computers?

Are any computer components and semi conductors made of the element Tellurium? I know they mostly consist of copper as conductors, but I'm presenting this for Chemistry class and chose tellurium as my element, since there were not others such as silicon or copper -sad face-. I was going to just unscrew all of the hardware out of the computer and bring it to class as my 'example' of tellurium.
