For me, the first sentence tries to tell that the internet has exactly (or at least approximately) 1 million computers. But that is probably not true.
Second sentence, on the other hand, is closer to the reality.
Additionally, the first sentence tries to be a definition, but using the indefinite article
a. In this context,
a sound bad. Also, when you want to express numbers,
to be is not the best verb.
