      It depends on your definition of a computer. If your definition is:
      * Information in
      * Processed with the ability to calculate and make decisions
      * Results out
      then you could consider Babage’s analytical engine, however this was never made
      Colossus would be your next bet, it was made by Tommy Flowers and his team of telephone engineers in 1943
      If you want a computer to be made using the design by von Neumann (stored program) the EDSAC and the Manchester Baby should be considered.
