but "PC" is an acronym for "Personal Computer". For some reason, the IBM PC (from a long time ago in a galaxy far away), the term "PC seemed to have attached itself to those computers running DOS and Windows. A PC, in the technical sense, can be any computer - used by an individual - that runs any number of operating systems from Microsoft, Apple or others... This would not normally include mini-computers or mainframes or computer chips used for specialized functions.

MAC, the acronym, is Media Access Control... read more about it at
