The primary memory device of this first generation of computers was a magnetic drum that rotated under a read/write head. When the memory cell that was being accessed rotated under the read/write head, the data was written to or read from that place. The input device was a card reader that read the holes punched in an IBM card (a descendant of the Hollerith card). The output device was either a punched card or a line printer. By the end of this generation, magnetic tape drives had been developed that were much faster than card readers.
