Answer 11943 Answer 2, Additional InputSince the question did not specify what type of computer, and there have been many prior to the electronic digital computer refered to in answer 1, I submit that the first computer referenced in recorded history is the abbacas which is reported to have originated in China somewhere in the time frame of 1000 BC to 500 BC. I have also read that some historical reports place its origin in Mesopotamia during the same time period.j3h.
