The Computer is the mainframe of the ComputerCraft mod, the heart of the mod, and properly used, the most powerful item at the player's disposal. Wireless Modems and Disk Drives can be attached to computers by being placed adjacent to the computer.
Note: Monitors were added in a newer version of ComputerCraft, which means they are only craftable in Technic 7.0+/Tekkit 3.0+!
The Computer is by no means an easy piece of equipment to use. You will likely have to look through quite a few tutorials before you get the hang of how to use it. The wiki only covers the very basics of its usage.
The Computer is a sandbox within the sandbox. It uses the relatively simple Lua language, and the player interacts with the Computer by writing programs and running them.
Programs that ask for a password when starting up the Computer let the player lock up his home with password protected doors, linking computers to heat sensors around nuclear reactors allows for construction of automatic breeder reactors that start themselves up, shut themselves off at 9000+ heat to start again at 6000, replace the used uranium cells with new ones and so on.
With the new Turtles and mining turtles, computers can be programmed to build houses, chop down trees and even dig through the earth in search for diamonds, all processes started by the flipping of a lever, changing "redstone.setInput == False" to "True" within the processor of a Computer.
