A system that can perform complex calculations. The term comes from the fact that all such systems can emulate each other and hence are equivalent in terms of the results they can achieve, even if obtaining those results takes longer with some systems than it does with others.

In this context the term "complex calculations" has a precise definition, if you are interested the Wikipedia page on Turing Completeness has a description.
