    This is my computer not their computer, they're intending to take it with them so there will be no computer left here.

    Their: is possesive pronoun, you use it when you want to say that something belongs to a group of people in which you are not included.

    Ex: Their house is the one at the corner.

    There: this is an adverb, you use it when you want to point out a thing. You use it if you want tell somebody where something or somebody is.

    Ex: There is the pen.

    They're: this is the contraction of "They Are".

    Hope this helps! ..

    Their is a possessive pronoun.

    They're is a subject pronoun plus a contracted verb.

    There can be an adverb of place or a noun of location.

    I keep seeing this being done wrong, by supposed natural English speakers as well. If they stopped to think what they're trying to say, would they get it right?

    their - something that belongs to them
    there - referring to a place, answer to where
    they're
    - short for they are
