The word computer is taken from the French computeur, which literally means one who computes.

These days, when we say computer, we often mean a type of processor, a programmable device that can store and process information of all kinds. Most computers have four separate components, a central processing unit, a memory device, input and output. Mouse, Keyboard, Monitor and Printer are all devices which be used to operate a computer. Quite amazingly, computers work entirely using the binary system, storing and operating everything through the combination of patterns of 1 and 0 or off and on.

Sometimes in the past, a person was called a computer, this means someone who performs mathematical calculations. This person is also sometimes called a computist.

The word is the same in most languages which use the standard Western alphabet. Noteable for not using that word are France which uses ordinateur and Finnish tietokone.
