I've mostly heard the word للكمبيوتر instead of الحاسوب


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FarahSED

حاسوب is the more formal word, the one used in MSA (Modern Standard Arabic) or (Al-fus.haa). In spoken Arabic and most dialects we tend to say كمبيوتر. Also we tend to use لاب توب (laptop) a lot in spoken Arabic.

Hi I'm Arabic speaker and yeah we call it كمبيوتر
And حاسوب is the same world

Same world? Probably you wanted to write 'same word'.

As they use لیب توب for laptop.

Is the cat working on the computer or just playing solitaire?

Just to point out that almost all exercises in the lesson contained the word 'faucet', and this is the only exercise that teaches the word 'computer'
