I am wanting to give a user the right to modify the description field for each PC in AD. Is there a way to do this without giving them full control to the objects?

Yes you can do this using the "delegate control" wizard in active directory users and computers.

When you use the delegation control wizard you will select "create a custom task".  Select computer objects then just give them rights to properties they need.  See screenshot below
