Either is considered correct. I prefer the first (comma before the and), but
the bottom line for any punctuation use is the meaning it gives to the
sentence.

It depends. If your style guide/editor is formal, it's the first. If not,
the second.

BUT ... shouldn't computer literate be computer-literate?

Here's another one for the English Experts:

Which sentence is correct, relative to the comma:

The Tech Writer was bright, articulate, knowledgeable, and computer
literate.
or
The Tech Writer was bright, articulate, knowledgeable and computer literate.


I'll post the results.
