English to English translations [Non-PRO] Computers (general) / Everyday usage
English term or phrase:Mac & PC
Is there a single generic term that could be used to denote both Macs and personal computers?
Explanation: The abbreviation PC tends to be associated with the derivatives of the IBM PC. IBM PC is a registered trademark of International Business Machines inc. Thus your question suggesting in your mind that a MAC and a PC are different. However, the term "Personal Computer" can and is applied to both.
