The fundamental differences are:

1) Automatic execution

2) Stored program

3) Mass storage

A calculator requires individual input of of each instruction. Computers store the instructions and execute them automatically. (those calculators that allow you to store a sequence of instruction, therefore show some of the characteristics of a computer).

Computers have (by comparison with calculators) LOTS of storage, allowing work to be carried out on a lot of data, quickly.

A big difference, a calculator runs computations only, while a computer runs a hundred tasks/ functions more.
