home computer

A personal computer that is used in the home rather than the office. In the 1980s, a home computer was the lowest-priced computer of the time, such as a Commodore 64. Today, there is little difference between most home and office hardware. Quite often, people spend more on their home machines than companies do on their users' PCs. However, in the office, the way in which software is installed and used may not be the same (see thin client and application virtualization). See personal computer.
