Let's look at tenses.
'a computer' is an object, not a person, so its pronoun is 'it'

'It came yesterday' is past tense.

What would present tense be?

What would future tense be?

What would future tense be?
It has arrived today. -- Present tense.

It will arrive tomorrow(or whatever time you choose like next month/year) -- Future tense.

P.S. : I am not a teacher of English. Just someone who loves the language.

It has arrived today. -- Present tense.

Typo no doubt - so just for clarity for beginners : Present Perfect Tense.

However, Present Perfect tense cannot be used with a time expression indicating a specific time, as opposed to a period of time.

The sentence should be:
"It has arrived."
or
"It arrived today."

If your company ordered three computers than in the plural the form would change as follows:

Are our computers arriving today?

and alternatively you can say:

When are our computers going to be delivered(by them)?

Usually in a commercial transaction delivery is a part of a contract(payment being the reciprocal).
