Juan Luis Guerra
Mi PC (English: My PC) is a 1998 song written and performed by Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra and his group, 4-40. The song was released as the first single from the album, Ni Es Lo Mismo Ni Es Igual which was produced by Guerra himself. The song became Guerra's second single to reach number-one on the Billboard Top Latin Songs after "El Costo de la Vida" in 1990. "Mi PC" combines lyrics and the sound of merengue to compare a woman to a personal computer. In the first verse of the lyrics, the singer brags about having a computer with "a gigabyte of your kisses", "a floppy of your personality", and "a mouse that moves your mouth". The second verse expresses disinterest in various contemporary status symbols - such as "a vest by Hugo Boss", "a painting by Miró" or "the ear of Holyfield" - as compared to the woman's love.

"Mi PC" debuted at #16 on the week of December 5, 1998 and climbed to #3 two weeks later. The song then peaked #1 on the Top Latin Songs for two nonconsecutive weeks where it was preceded and succeeded by Chayanne's Dejaría Todo. On the review of the album, Evan Gutierrez of Allmusic called "Mi PC" a "humorous and rollicking" merengue.
