Well, the end line is very, very blurry (stricto senso, the OS could include every single app installed on top of it), but the start line is pretty clear : it's an average computer, in the Mobo+RAM+CPU+IO sense.

(And again, we can argue about whether or not the BIOS/EFI is a part of the computer or not. In my opinion it is, since you can't buy a BIOS or a non-BIOS computer separately.)


Sorry, but I'm not sure why you've brought the BIOS and EFI into this as that's not part of the OS. It's part of the hardware itself (just as a DVD drives, HDDs adn key keyboards will all have firmware too).
