A minicomputer is a type of computer that possesses most of the features and capabilities of a large computer but is smaller in physical size.

A minicomputer fills the space between the mainframe and microcomputer, and is smaller than the former but larger than the latter. Minicomputers are mainly used as small or midrange servers operating business and scientific applications. However, the use of the term minicomputer has diminished and has merged with servers.

A minicomputer may also be called a mid-range computer.

Hi, a minicomputer is smaller in dimension when compared
to normal computers. However, it has all the features that are found in the bigger
device. Its size is between that of microcomputers and mainframe computers. However,
their processing power and their capacity vary. In my opinion, minicomputers
are better than other ones.

A minicomputer is also known as mini. It is a class of small computers that was introduced into the world in the mid-1960s. A minicomputer is a computer which has all the features of a large size computer, but its size is smaller than those. A minicomputer lies between the mainframe and the microcomputer because its size is smaller than the former one and larger than the latter one. A minicomputer is also called as a mid-range computer. Minicomputers are mainly multi-users systems where more than one user can work simultaneously. Minicomputer examples: IBM’s AS/400e, Honeywell200, TI-990
