Literally, a computer compatible with the IBM PC. Now taken to mean any computer based around the Intel x86 series processor (or a compatible processor, like the AMD K5, K6, K6-2, K6-3, Athlon, and Duron) and a combination of PCI and ISA bus expansion cards. (Although ISA seems to be slowly being phased out.)
