Set of computing platforms that are characterized for being powerfull, multi-use, customizable, personal (as in not restricted by any company or goverment) and flexible. Examples of PC`s are the Atari, Commodore, Amiga, RISCPC (all of these long deceased) and recently Apple and IBM (Dell, HP and others where making computers with the IBM platform but recently dropped this platform in favor of a new Micro$oft made one which is too restricted and unflexible and doesn`t count as a PC platform).
Dude 1: I`m trying to watch this Pirates of the Caribean movie I got off aMule, but my HP turns itself off whenever I launch the media player.
Dude 2: That`s becuase you`re using a M$C. That thing was programmed to obey the gov and disobey you, do as I did and get yourself a PC.
Dude 1: from whom.
Dude 2: I recommend Apple. There`s System76 and Dell, but System76 doesn`t make international delivery, so they`re not an option if you live anywhere out of US, and with Dell they do international delivery but telling the few PC`s they make from the M$C`s can be tough, Apple do only PC`s and they do international delivery, plus they have dealers in most countries.
