Workstation

 

The term workstation used to refer to extremely powerful desktop computers which were often (and still are) used by the scientific and research communities. They tend to run the UNIX® operating system using powerful RISC processors with massive screens and superb graphics!

Today, however, whilst the above definition remains broadly true, workstation can also be used interchangeably with 'PC' where the computer is attached to the corporate network / LAN.
