Thanks Bill -

I found [컴퓨터를] from search engine, also find that 컴퓨터를.net is available, then I register it today.
systranet.com translate [컴퓨터를] as 'Computer' too.

The funny thing is the Google search result:
컴퓨터 - about 1,850,000 Korean pages for "컴퓨터"
컴퓨터를 - about 4,830,000 Korean pages for "컴퓨터를"

So, which term is better?

I'm not Korean, but I believe 를 identifies the noun (in this case 컴퓨터) as the object of a sentence or indicates possession. Either way, the main term would be 컴퓨터 (which is actually phonetic for 'computer').
