Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Ferranti Mark 1, also known as the Manchester Electronic Computer in its sales literature, and thus sometimes called the Manchester Ferranti, was the world's first commercially available general-purpose electronic computer. The first machine was delivered to Manchester University in February 1951, just ahead of the UNIVAC I which was delivered to the United States Census Bureau a month later. The machine was built by Ferranti of the United Kingdom. It was based on the Manchester Mark 1, which was designed at the University of Manchester by Freddie Williams and Tom Kilburn. The Manchester Mark 1 effectively served as a prototype for the Ferranti Mark 1; the main improvements over it were in the size of the primary storage and secondary storage, a faster multiplier, and additional instructions.
