What are embedded computer systems?

“Some of the embedded systems we use every day control the menu system on television, the timer in a microwave oven, a cell phone, an MP3 player or any other device with some amount of intelligence built-in. In fact, recent poll data shows that embedded computer systems currently outnumber humans in the USA.”

Both a computer (including as a handheld “smartphone”) & an embedded system are types of computers by definition. Though both share similarities in terms of components including but not limited to: Processors, RAM, ROM, and other peripherals, they have some major differences that we should consider.
