what is computer


Recommended Posts

there can be non-electronic computers as anyone with a computer science degree will tell you.  For instance:
"The Lehmer sieve is an example of a digital non-electronic computer, specialized for finding primes and solving simple Diophantine equations. When digital electronic computers appeared, they displaced all other kinds of computers, including analog computers and mechanical computers"

a more complete definition than the one you copied from dictionary.com would be:
"The first and most standard definition is that a computer is something which computes or calculates. It is a machine that takes in raw data and performs some calculations on it and gives us the formed output in the desired format."
