What is Computron
In IT, a 'Computron' is a fictitious unit of computer performance that is intended to describe the ability of a computer or device. Less tech-savvy people can use this term informally to indicate the amount of computing power available.

Experts in IT slang describe the Computron as a hypothetical synthesis of instruction speed, storage capacity and available memory. Basic usage of the term Computron involves end users talking about what a particular computer can do. For example, if a computer does not meet the system requirements, the user can say that they 'don't have enough computers'. A computer with a new Pentium processor could be described as 'many computers under the hood'. The common Computron utility is to talk about computing power as if it were a generic type of commodity rather than the abstract and complex system.
