Is PC's definition personal computer?  I know of some x86 boxes which
aren't really "personal", but I think they're still called PCs.

I think the x86 part of x86_64 therefore makes the same apply here.
Yes, there are 64bit machines that aren't called PCs, but generally I
think PC refers to Intel compatible machines.
