I'm looking for a word that you'd use to refer to all computers that distinguishes them from gaming consoles. The word "computer" is too general - that would include servers and other industrial machines - and technically consoles as well. I could go with "home computer" or "personal computer", but I'd like to find a single word that works. My gut tells me that "PC" fits the bill, but most people who see "PC" associate it with one running some version of Windows - Mac and Linux machines are not included (even though they do meet the original definition of "personal computer"). I thought "desktop" would be a good word, but it excludes laptops and tablets. It's specifically needed relating to games. For the opposite, there's one word: "console" is generally considered to include all versions of XBox, Playstation, and Nintendo (and Sega, Atari, etc. if you go back far enough). What I'm looking for is the opposite. The sentence is:
More and more, game consoles are starting to resemble ___s, with internal hard drives, network connections, etc.
