Este es mi ordenador


Explanation:
En España diremos siempre ordenador. El término computadora se emplea en los países suramericanos. En función del público al que vaya dirigida la traducción podríamos emplear uno u otro, aunque yo preferiría siempre ordenador. El término PC son las iniciales de Personal Computer, y no me parece adecuado puesto que existen otros más correctos en lengua castellana.
