    FIRST-GENERATION COMPUTERS

    The computers that were developed from 1942 to 1955 were called the first-generation computers. These computers used vacuum tube which consists of a glass bulb and wire.The computers were very large, expensive and required huge amounts of electricity. There were called the ENIAC. Link text

    SECOND-GENERATION COMPUTERS

    The computers used transistors instead of vacuum tubes.

    THIRD-GENERATION COMPUTERS

    Intergrated circuit were introduced during the development of the third-generation computers. An intergrated circuit is as small as a transistor but it can work as fast as thousands of them. Integrated circuits made computers faster, cheaper, and smaller than the second-generation computers.Link text

    FORTH-GENERATION COMPUTERS

    The fourth-generation computers use microprocessors. A microprocessor consists of a small silicon chip on which thousands of circuits are placed. The computers are smaller, portable, and cheaper. They use less electricity and produce less heat.Link tex

    FIFTH-GENERATION COMPUTERS

    Fifth-generatios computers are the future, they are the most advanced computers.Scientists are now trying to develop fifth-generation computers in a way that they can think on their own. This is called Artificial Intelligence. Robots work on this technology.Link text
