List of home computers by category

This is a list of home and office computers by category where the main category is the home computer's CPU wordlength (8/16/32/64 bits) and the subcategory is the specific CPU used in each machine. Computers with more than one CPU are listed under each of their optional CPUs.

For an uncategorized list, see the list of home computers, which gives an alphabetic list sorted by computer manufacturer name and subsorted by introduction year. For a home computer list categorized by Video Hardware capabilities , see the List of home computers by video hardware. For a list of microcomputers of the pre-home computer era, see the list of early microcomputers.
