Personal Computers are based on the microprocessor technology that enables manufacturers to put an entire CPU on one chip. Businesses use personal computers for word processing, accounting, desktop publishing, and for running spreadsheet and database management applications. At home, the most popular use for personal computers is playing games and surfing the Internet.

2. Mini Computer: Mini Computer is a midsize multi-processing system capable of supporting up to 250 users simultaneously.
