From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   computer
  
      A machine that can be programmed to manipulate
      symbols.   Computers can perform complex and repetitive
      procedures quickly, precisely and reliably and can quickly
      store and retrieve large amounts of data.
  
      The physical components from which a computer is constructed
      (electronic circuits and input/output devices) are known as
      "{hardware}".   Most computers have four types of hardware
      component: CPU, input, output and memory.   The CPU ({central
      processing unit}) executes programs ("{software}") which tell
      the computer what to do.   Input and output (I/O) devices allow
      the computer to communicate with the user and the outside
      world.   There are several kinds of memory - fast, expensive,
      short term memory (e.g. {RAM}) to hold intermediate results,
      and slower, cheaper, long-term memory (e.g. {magnetic disk} and
      {magnetic tape}) to hold programs and data between jobs.
  
      See also {analogue computer}.
