A powerful mainframe computer, maybe even more powerful than a mainframe. The word is widely used to refer to the most powerful high-performance systems available at any given time. Such computers have mostly been utilised for scientific and technical work that requires extremely fast computations.


A mainframe computer is larger than a supercomputer but smaller than a minicomputer and has greater processing capability than other types of computers such as minicomputers, servers, workstations, and personal computers. The term "mainframe computer" was used to distinguish between the typical, huge, institutional computer designed to serve several people and the smaller, single-user computers.


A medium-power computer that is more powerful than a microcomputer but less powerful than a mainframe. It is equipped with the majority of the features and capabilities of a big computer. A minicomputer is also known as a mid-range computer; however, the word minicomputer has become obsolete and has been merged with servers.


The word "microcomputer" has almost become an anachronism since it has gone out of favour. In the late twentieth century, microcomputers became the most prevalent form of computer. With the introduction of systems based on single-chip microprocessors, the term "microcomputer" was coined. The Altair 8800, launched in 1975, was the most well-known early system. Microcomputers include desktop computers, laptops, and rack-mount computers.

Other computers

These include computers that don't fit the above categories so they are most likely something like a relay-based computer or another thing.
