The term Personal Computer is now outdated.

Tablets, smartphones, even watches are all computers that are are now way more personal than a desktop.

Do you think it's time to change the term so to speak?

So you don't deny that YES the term is outdated?

Think about it for a second. Think about why it was created in the first place. Think about how times have changed.
It's time to move forwards. I propose HUC. Hard Unit Computer, meaning it comes with a monitor (same as laptops) and a separate base or tower deck.

Well what would you suggest?
Realistically, a smartphone IS much more personal to people now than a PC. How about ....eh....LLCPU and PCPU, Land Locked computer and Portable computer for Desktops and laptops respectively. Realistically you aren't going to cart your PC about from one room to the next all the time....

You're the reason we don't get Metroid Prime games any more. And you killed Optimus Prime. You dirty person.

Nobody calls a PC a PC because we're thinking "gosh, I love how personal my computer is... it's way more personal than those International Business Machines!"

They call it a PC because they need a way to differentiate themselves from Mac users, or rather, Mac users need a way to differentiate themselves from PC users. If you didn't have that group we could drop the "personal" part altogether and just call it a computer.

Let's call it what it really is: gaming machine (GM!) or Cat Picture Delivery Device (CPDD).
