Everyone either owns a computer, or uses them as part of a job, or has been at least exposed to them.

Naturally, this gets spiced up for TV land.

As a result, computers on TV often bear only superficial resemblance to their real life counterparts. In fact, they are often just a [[ArthurCClarke 21st-century substitute for magic]]. A [[TechnoWizard Computer Wizard]] ''is'' a literal wizard. Evoking arcane words with their keyboard, they cast spells into the infinite (and physically real) realms of {{Cyberspace}}.

For computers which are ''literally'' magical see {{Magitek}}. See also ClarkesThirdLaw. If a computer is shoddy, and magical in any way (except maybe magically ''terrible''), it's TheAllegedComputer.
