Man first started counting on his fingers and toes. It is no coincidence that "digit" refers to body parts and numbers. Then came the first real computer, the Abacus. Designed to deal with larger numbers and a mechanical object. The Abacus is thought to have been invented by the ancient Babylonians between 1000 BC and 500 BC.

The computer was designed to solve math problems. It then evolved into what we have today. Before computers, the abacus was a popular tool for calculating, and was usually faster then the computer (in fact, people made money by betting on what would solve first: abacus or computer)

abacus is the first manual mechanical calculator

Yes, it was an early mechanical computer. It is regarded as the first computer, made over 5000 years ago. An abacus is not like a modern computer. People think of a computer as an electronic, programmable device that can store, retrieve, and process data. There were many computing devices prior to the electronic computer that had processing capabilities. They were mechanical devices and are computers. There are many different kinds of computing devices and an abacus is one of them.
