コンピュータが欲しい。


Explanation:
直訳すればコンピュータを買いたいですが、
普通はコンピュータが欲しい....と言います。

In directly translation it is コンピュータを買いたい, but we often say コンピュータが欲しい.

Thank you.

(watashi wa) "computer" wo kaitai, (私は)コンピューターを買いたい。


Explanation:
A sentence in question can be translated as follows:

I = わたしは
a computer= コンピューターを
to buy = 購入する事を
want = 欲する

However, in everyday conversation "want to buy" can be translated as "kaitai =買いたい" or "hoshi i = 欲しい".
