To me 'embedded' is where the user has access to a system without (necessarily) realising there is a computer of some sort doing the hard graft behind the scenes - they are not programming it directly (by loading applications or programs, or generating programs) or using it to store or compute data (databases, accounting etc), but may be interacting with it through minimised (specialised) keyboard and display, such as coffee maker, microwave, toaster or flight simulator. Into this category could also go PVR, (modern) television sets, and so on where the use of a computer is not obvious to the user.

But to boil that down to a single word, the best I can think of is 'hidden', 'not obvious', 'behind the scenes'.
