The explanations in the tutorial seem clear and simple. What do you not understand?

You can follow this link for difference between byte and character streams:

http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/Streams/ProgIOStreams/index.html

A buffered stream does not do an I/O operation for every byte read, it buffers the bytes in memory for effecient performance
