First generation of computer developed in 1940 and its time period is till 1959.

>> In first generation of computer vacuum tubes are basic circuitry components and megnatic drums are used for storage memory purpose.

>> In first generation of computer lots of tubes, electrical bulbs are used which produce lot of heat and fuse frequently so it has drawback of thermal run away.

>> First generation computer cannot be used for long time because it heats so much due to which system failure occurs.

>> First generation computer needs a whole AC to cool it down or to escape it from thermal runaway.

>> There are many drawbacks in first generation computer like it is very big in size, Very costly, Non profitable, Slower processing, Consume lot of electricity etc.

>> Some computers of fist generation are ENIAC, EDVAC, UNIVAC, IBM-701, IBM-650.
