Computer

an electronic device that manipulates, assembles and stores data

Layman's Definition: A computer can be PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or any other electronic device that takes data in and does something with it based on the instructions it has been given. Using the analogy of a restaurant, a computer is the restaurant and the data it manipulates is the food prepared using the algorithms (instruction sets) which are referred to as recipes.
