Nor have you said what you mean by a home computer.

typical - definition of typical by The Free Dictionary
typ·i·cal (t p-k l) adj. 1. Exhibiting the qualities, traits, or
characteristics that identify a kind, class, group, or category:
a typical suburban community.

Home dictionary definition | home defined

inside the place where a person or family resides.
