    I don't think that you can display the Computer Icon on the Desktop. You can have it in the Sidebar of Finder windows by going into Finder Preferences>Sidebar and ticking that option.

    You can also display your Hard Drive icon on the Desktop by, again, going into Finder Preferences>General. That's pretty much the same as the Computer icon as double clicking will display the contents of your Mac.

    The option isn't under System Preferences > General.

    It's in Finder. Look under the Finder menu, and choose the Preferences menu item. The Finder's Preferences window should appear.
