Minicomputers were used in some of the early American space launches. It is difficult to compare the minicomputer with the personal computers of today. The personal computer is far larger in terms of memory capacity and peripheral storage capacity, and faster in processing speed.

Computer - Computer - History of computing: A computer might be described with deceptive simplicity as “an apparatus that performs routine calculations automatically.” Such a definition would owe its deceptiveness to a naive and narrow view of calculation as a strictly mathematical process.

In fact, calculation underlies many activities that are not normally thought of as mathematical.minicomputer (1) A computer with a small form factor. See mini PC.
