Computer vs Ordenador

In this lesson it said to translate “Dad’s computer”. So I entered “La computadora de papá”. It said that is incorrect and should be “El ordenador de papá”. Can you help me understand why computadora would not be correct? Thank you!

Hola Kari

La computadora is also correct. We tend to use Peninsular Spanish vocabulary generally as Kwiziq is focused in Spanish from Spain, and "ordenador" is what we use there for "computer" but we will add "computadora" to the options in the exercise as the general word for it in Latin America. 

Saludos
