Personal computer


A PC, short for personal computer, is a multi-purpose computer used by one person at a time in a business, an educational institution, or the comfort of a home.

The main types of PCs include high-end personal computers (workstations), desktop computers, laptops, and gaming computers.

Unlike laptops, desktop PCs aren’t portable devices. They aren’t designed for convenient transportation in briefcases and backpacks. In spite of that, they are much more powerful and manufacturers continuously work to reduce their size.
