Can mean a lot of things. Notably:

Computer system: A somewhat more technical term for describing a rig, usually including a processor, hard disk, monitor, RAM, cards, etc.

A weather system: An area that has an airmass of notably high or low air pressure; can be affected by thermodynamic interactions with the atmosphere, bodies of water, etc.

System: In general, anything that unifies more than one thing or organizes them. Eg: healthcare system, etc.

System (of a Down): System is often used as an abbreviation for the name of this kick-ass band because you want to save time for discussing how awesome they are.
Some guy:
Hey Jim, I just made a new system for getting my homework done so I can check all the high-pressure systems on my expensive new system, while listening to System!

2.
The borough of Etobicoke, (pronounced: e-toe-bi-coe) known as a Township prior to 1967, joined the City of Toronto in the amalgamation of 1998. Etobicoke forms the majority of the western part of Toronto, though it should be noted that Missisauga, Brampton, and Oakville are all more westerly than it.

Etobicoke is a mixed area, with more affluent areas such as the Kingsway and Bloor West Village, and less prosperous areas such as Lakeshore and Albion.

It should be further noted that Jane and Finch, although a notable area, is NOT in Etobicoke, in fact, it is much closer to Vaughan.
Me: Etobicoke is part of Toronto.
Guy: Yep. This isn't really necessary because the definition was pretty long.
