For computer objects, in the AD there is a "Description" property. When I click on an asset there is a description, however it does not appear to be getting the value from the AD, is it therefore pulling it from the windows computer itself?
I want to update several servers and pc's descriptions however I am not see changes when I update the value in AD so my assumption is I need to update the computer. correct?

Correct, the description field stores a Windows computer’s local computer description.

The Active Directory computer description is stored in tblADComputers.Description if you want to use that in a report.
