Only one ENIAC computer was built. It consisted of a number of units wired together, and needed to be rewired to be reprogrammed. However, after 1948 a number of improvements were made to the original ENIAC computer

Only one ENIAC was built. Its parts are now on display in various museums around the US and other parts of the world.

As a bit of interesting trivia, a modern design CPU was created in the mid-1990s to perform the same functionality as the ENIAC and it measured a scant 5 millimeters by 7 millimeters in size. Compare this to the size of the ENIAC which took almost as much room as a 4-bedroom house!

Only one was built. It is now on display in multiple pieces in various museums across the US and in other parts of the world.

As an interesting bit of trivia, in the mid-1990s, a modern design CPU was constructed to emulate the functionality of the ENIAC and it was built to be only about 5 millimeters by 7 millimeters in size. Compare this to the ENIAC itself which required almost as much room as a 4-bedroom house.
