The Computer is an object in The Sims 2. At 5000 simoleons, it is one of the most expensive items the store sells along with the Plasma TV. The Computer can be used to spam other sims, however this is illegal and your sim has a risk of being caught and sent to jail, at which point bail will be deducted. Due to the risks involved and no incentive to spam other sims, it's very overpriced and players generally make little use out of it. It's one of the two objects which could lead to being imprisoned when used, the other being the Money Making Machine.
