Stands for "Original Equipment Manufacturer." This refers to a company that produces hardware to be marketed under another company's brand name. You can also use the term as a verb, such as, "That Dell monitor over there is OEM'd by Sony."
For example, if Sony makes a monitor that will marketed by Dell, a "Dell" label will get stuck on the front, but the O.E.M. of the monitor is Sony.
That should impress your friends.
