There is no real "right" or"correct" deffenation for the tearm computer. However What I can give you is what my teacher spouted off at me some years ago. Computer: A machine comprized of circuts and chips that gives one the ability to do work in a more orgnized setting. Or something like that. This dates back of course when computers were wall-mounted units comperized of lights and switches and used punch coded sheets to comprize data. Now its much smaller, and is able to do so much more.

A computer is a machine that turns 0s and 1s into useful programs and information.

Wow, now that is an interesting question! For me, a computer is truly too many things for me to select a single definition...but if only one is allowed, then I shall say it is a tool. :) Karen
