How does SLM decide what is a 'device'?

Hi everybody,


When you view Application Details in SLM, there are various tabs, for example: Computers, Users, Devices, etc...


I've noticed that we have a few Windows Desktops (eg Windows 10 Pro with Snow Agent 5.3.0) which appear in SLM under the "Devices" tab rather than the "Computers" tab.  I'm wondering how SLM decides what is a Computer and what is a Device on this page?


I was surprised to see Windows 10 Desktop PCs being listed as "Devices"...  Does anybody know why?  I even checked to make sure that Snow Inventory marks the "Is Portable" flag to false for these machines.


(We're on SLM v8.3.01 and Snow Inventory v5.4.00)
