You are so correct! I need to stop thinking of computers in a pre-internet way - i.e., a computer is a computer if it runs all the applications I use on it. Nowadays, with so many applications freely available online, one could really use an internet tablet for just about everything as long as there is a (fast) reliable internet connection. I, personally, am just not ready to make that jump....

Me neither. A computer has to be able to load programs on it for me to call it a computer. Otherwise everything is a computer these days. My DVD player is still not a computer to me. I microwave is still not a computer to me. Even though they all contain microprocessors in them. If you can't get to the OS and load programs on it then it is a dedicated machine, not a computer.

Yes, of course. And with the Nokia machines you can do that. And you can write programs in it ans so on. But a machine nowadays that you cannot connect to the internet is not really a general computer anymore.
