Micro computers use micro-processors. The computers that we use at home are all micro computers. The term "microcomputer" was introduced with the advent of single chip microprocessors. The term "microcomputer" itself, is now practically an anachronism.These computers include: * Desktop computers * Laptop and notebook computers * Tablet PC * Palmtop computers * Personal digital assistants (more commonly known as PDA's) * Programmable calculatorA) Micro processor- Microprocessors are simply a computer processor that has been configured into the design and function of a microchip.
