Due to the huge number of heat-generating semiconductors and other components, mid '60s computers were kept in a VERY cool room to maintain an adequate temperature (typically 68 degrees F or so), with redundant air conditioners, in case one failed. Also, the huge disc drives that I saw had about 20" removable platters (a stack of 4-5 discs) as their storage discs. These were a whopping 40 Megabytes, as I recall. The washing machin-sized "Disc Drives" that held these massive platters HAD to have an excellent seal and vacuum system to keep dust particles out. The read/write heads floated so close to the discs that a particle of dust, or a smoke particle inside the drive could "crash" the heads. These were computers from about 1967 or so.
the modern computers are smaller than early computers becouse the early computers could not program the new computers we have today. our computers have more technology.
Early Computers were large in size while today computers are compacted .Early Computers were Vaccum tube and transistor based while today computers are ICs based.Early Computers were slow and today computers are fast.Early Computers were used punch card for storage while today computers used Secondry storage ( Hard Disk) for storage.Early Computers were not user friendly todays computers are user friendly
Charles Babbage was considered as the father of modern computers.he has made 2 important machines of early times they are :-The Analytical engine and the Difference engine.
no That is for early computers
Computers were not developed in early times, they are a product of the recent, modern age.
The punch card loom, considered to be an early form of the computer. computers needed this or they would not work as well.
Charles Babbage is considered the father of the computer. He created the first mechanical prototype in the early 19th century.
Compared to modern computers early electronic computers were slow, compared the human computers they replaced early electronic computers were ultra fast (and made fewer errors).
because computers cannot refrodece with other computers
No computers weren't invented
It's rigid packaging foam, great for computers and sensitive devices.
Computers were invented in the early to mid 1940s.
The father of computers is Charles Babbage
As with all computers early mainframes did not multitask (early microcomputers did not multitask, early minicomputers did not multitask, early supercomputers did not multitask). Now almost all computers multitask. Multitasking has nothing to do with the size of a computer, it is almost entirely a software feature of the OS running on the computer.
Well for one, the computers of the past were huge. And slow. Inversely, the computers of today are smaller and many times as powerful as early computers.
A sensitive drilling machine is an upright drilling machine. However, a radial drilling machine is also considered a sensitive drilling machine.
That would be a computer that was entirely mechanical. Historians like to compare certain kinds of cloth weaving equipment to mechanical computers. The first generation computers are normally considered to be the ones built with vacuum tubes and span the time period from the early 1940s to about 1958 when transistorized computers (e.g. IBM 7090) appear.
Data on early computers were stored on magnetic tapes and/or cartoon cards and/or removable hard disk drives.
Macintosh computers are a personal computer.
