The Four Generations of Computers

Computer Moniters

What is It?

There have been lots of changes in the world of computer designs. Each change is considered to be a new generation of monitors.

First Genaration

The first generation of computers consisted of 18000 vacuum tubes and 7000 resistors.

It was created by John P.E and John W.

The first generation uses the vacuum tubes and magnetic drums for storage.

some pictures of the first genaration

Second Genaration

The second generation had a transistor which was smaller and uses less energy, it has storage which uses a magnetic tape instead of a magnetic drum!

Third Generation

The third generation contained an integrated circuit. It included electric components

Fourth Generation

This included sharing. So, you can share data from computer to computer.
