All Ask Computer and Internet Glossary

Computer

A computer is a machine for manipulating data according to a list of instructions known as a program. Computers come in many shapes and sizes, and frequently, disguises. A computer may be the PC System you use or a laptop. But "embedded computers" are also found in mobile phones, digital cameras, fridges and microwaves, to name just a few.
