the second generation

Second-generation computers moved from cryptic binary machine language to symbolic, or assembly, languages. These were also the first computers that stored their instructions in their memory, which moved from a magnetic drum to magnetic core technology.

CPU facts

Computers in the 1940s were very large, filling up whole rooms. They took vast amounts of electricity to run and compute information. In the beginning computers were given simple tasks to carry out, like adding numbers together or moving information called "data" from one area to another. Computers interact with a number of different I/O (input/output) devices to exchange information. These peripheral devices include the keyboard, mouse, display, hard drive, printer and more.
