The IBM 650 "Magnetic Drum Data Processing Machine":

In 1953 IBM Endicott, New York, announced the IBM 650 Magnetic Drum Data Processing Machine. This was the first mass-produced computer. Between 1953 and 1962 almost 2000 systems were produced. At this time IBM was reluctant to call the machine a computer, since that term was so closely associated with UNIVAC. "the IBM 650 Magnetic Drum Data Processing Machine brought a new

Memory Storage Timeline of Computer History

The IBM 726 was an early and important practical high-speed magnetic tape system for electronic computers. Announced on May 21, 1952, the system used a unique ‘vacuum channel’ method of keeping a loop of tape circulating between two points, allowing the tape drive to start and stop the tape in a split-second. The Model 726 was initially sold in 1953 with IBM’s first electronic digital ...
