OO is not exactly a computational model, rather it is a model (which, by the way, is another synonym for "paradigm") for computational *structure*. For example, if I write a bubble sort in procedural C and in OO C++ the algorithm will be exactly the same, but the structure of the algorithm will have some significant differences.
