GEC Computers was a British computer company, working in the real-time area. It was created in 1969 by the mergers of the real-time work of English Electric Computers, GEC, AEI, Marconi and Elliott-Automation, to form Marconi Elliott Computer Systems Limited, re-named GEC Computers in 1971. They were a subsidiary of General Electric Company of England.

Their products included the GEC 4000 Series (including the GEC 4080). In the 1980s the company brought out its Series 63 machines, intended to compete with the VAX; the British Government bought about ten of as part of its Alvey Project, about half of all of those made.
