The electronic device 20 includes a housing 22. It is used to cover a plurality of electronic components, such as a memory, a central processing unit, a touch screen, etc., so that the electronic device 20 is a touch-sensitive computer device that can be used independently. In order to enable the electronic device 20 to be firmly engaged with the carrier 12, the surface of the housing 22 includes two receiving recesses 221 formed at positions adjacent to the sides of the housing 22 and corresponding to the positioning pins 18 of the carrier 12. The housing 22 has two through holes 223 formed in the side of the housing 22 for communicating with the corresponding receiving recesses 221 for socketing the positioning pins 18 of the carrier 12 . The electronic device 20 further includes two elastic members 24 respectively disposed in the corresponding receiving recesses 221 . When the positioning pin 18 extends into the receiving recess 221 via the through hole 223, the elastic member 24 is used to clamp the fastening portion 182 of the positioning pin 18, thereby restricting the movement of the positioning pin 18 relative to the housing 22, thereby causing the electronic device 20 to move. It can be stably engaged with the carrier 12. The electronic device 20 further includes a plurality of abutting blocks 26.
