A couple questions about "modern" words

Is there a recommended abbreviation for PC (as in personal computer)? Would it be an intersection of P and K, from personal and computer? Or p-e-s-e, from the way it's spoken?

Also, I can't find "microwave" in my dictionary, which surprised me. I have been spelling it m-i-k-r-o-a-v, leaving out the w because it seemed superfluous. It works for me, I was just wondering if there was an official spelling.
