Not 100% corrent. Nowaday the term PC normally refers to IBM compatible PCs. BUT back in the 70s and 80s machines like the Apple II, the commodore PET, etc. were marketed as Personal Computers or PCs long before IBM decided to enter the PC market (IBM mainly built mainframes back then). I'll try to rephrase it a bit. Nurgle 09:14, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

What about the term "Home Computer" then?. I remember back in the 80s that there was a pretty clear destinction between Home Computers and Personal Computers. Also even IBM tried to rebrand the PC in making a Home Computer version of the PC. The PCjr (PC Junior)! IBM PCJr on Wikipedia. CPCLER 09:25, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Look what I've done! :*) Yes, I also used the term "Home Computer" and - oh I remember the PCjr. Epic fail! IIRC the PCjr project was led by the same guy who later took over commodore management and drove them into bancruptcy. Back on topic: I am quite pleased with the article contents now, but we really need more english native speakers to find the correct words and put them in the correct order.
