There is no easyanswer to this question due to the many different classifications ofcomputers. The first mechanical computer, created byCharles Babbagein1822, doesn't really resemble what most would consider a computer today. Therefore, this document has been created with a listing of each of the computer firsts,starting with theDifference Engine and leading up to the computers we use today.Note:Early inventions which helped lead up to the computer, such as theabacus,calculator, and tablet machines, are not accounted for in this document.The word"computer" was first usedThe word"computer" was first recorded as being used in1613and originally was used to describe a human who performed calculations or computations. The definition of a computer remained the same until the end of the 19th century, when the industrial revolution gave rise to machines whose primary purpose was calculating.First mechanicalcomputer or automatic computing engine conceptIn1822,Charles Babbageconceptualized and began developing theDifference Engine, considered to be the first automatic computing machine. The Difference Engine was capable of computing several sets of numbers and makinghard copiesof the results. Babbage received some help with development of the Difference Engine fromAda Lovelace, considered by many to be the first computer programmer for her work and notes on the Difference Engine. Unfortunately, because of funding, Babbage was never able to complete a full-scale functional version of this machine. In June of1991, the London Science Museum completed the Difference Engine No 2 for the bicentennial year of Babbage's birth and later completed the printing mechanism in 2000.In1837, Charles Babbage proposed the first general mechanical computer, theAnalytical Engine. The Analytical Engine containedanArithmetic Logic Unit (ALU), basicflow control,punch cards(inspired by theJacquard Loom), and integratedmemoryand is the first general-purpose computer concept. Unfortunately, because of funding issues, this computer was also never built while Charles Babbagewas alive. In1910, Henry Babbage, Charles Babbage's youngest son, was able to complete a portion of this machine and was able to perform basic calculations.

Many people confuses themself the first computer was by Charles Babbage. Mr. Babbage Built a machine (ALU) which is more a calculator machine then a computer; but laided down the first stone or building block of computer. Hence he is called as father of computer.

Hello @Flyshield
In my view there is no particular answer for this.
In my opinion a computer must have cpu ,ram etc which wasn't available
Until Commodore 1977 .
It's kind of annoying PCs are improving day by day inventor by inventor but as we see the trend was set by Charles Babbage . Father of computer .

Charles Babbage, an English mechanical engineer and polymath, originated the concept of a programmable computer. Considered the "father of the computer",[15] he conceptualized and invented the first mechanical computer in the early 19th century
