The French were able to find another word for it: ordinateur. We Italians couldn't, so we say "computer", just the pronounciation is - of course, we can't help it! - different.

"Elaboratore elettronico"

or "calcolatore elettronico".

The word in italian exists, but nobody use it.
We prefer to use "computer".
