No it's still a PC, it's just that it's an embedded PC ..the Hardware configuration for some changes are restricted to a certain profile of built in Software for its hardware.

PC = simply personal Computer..

So it's still a PC, it's just that it's a PC with a restriction of What Operating systems can be loaded onto the hardware.

iOS devices are locked to iOS. Windows Phone to Windows Phone. Google also likes locking devices to Android.
