Microcomputer aka Personal Computer or PC

a small computer that is desktop size and uses a microprocessor chip (the brains of the unit) to run the computer. It is generally used by only one person at a time, but it can be networked to provide communication with other PCs, mainframes and minicomputers. Both Macintosh and IBM-compatible computers are considered a part of this category of computers.
