Best Answer

Several electronic analog computers were made in the 1930s.

The first electronic digital computer was the Atanasoff-Berry Computer (ABC) in early 1942, it worked (except for intermittent problems in the high speed "card" reader/punch) but was abandoned soon after when the two people working on it left for war work.

The next electronic digital computer was the Colossus a prototype of which was built in December 1943 and the first production unit went into operation in June 1944 just in time to crack critical German messages that were used by the Allied generals to commit to the D-Day landings despite very bad weather conditions. Unfortunately these computers (the only ones built in a quantity greater than one until Univac in 1952) remained classified until the early 1980s and so do not appear in most histories of computing.

The first well known electronic digital computer was the Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer (ENIAC) in November 1945 and announced to the public in February 1946.

Where wasthe first computer made?

The first electronic computer was made at Iowa State University, but, alas, it could not be reprogrammed. The "Z" computer was made in Germany, and was the first to be reprogrammable. The British Colossus computer was made at Bletchley Park, UK, but the first general-purpose reprogrammable computer, called ENIAC, was made at the University of Pennsylvania in 1946.

Was ENIAC the first electronic computer?

ENIAC was not the first electronic computer. The first electronic computer was the Colossus, Bletchley Park, during WWII. "Eniac was not the first computer, it was the 11th," The ABC was indeed a very early digital electronic device, but was not programmable, it was single purpose. See the related links.
