This generation of computers were characterized by:

  •     Considerable reduction in physical size
  •     Increased reliability
  •     Greater speeds (in terms of micro-seconds, i.e. 10–6 seconds)
  •     Large memory
  •     Transistors as basic components
  •     Greater computing power
  •     Faster and better Input/Output peripherals.

Examples of such computers are IBM-1401, Honeywell 800, IBM-1620, etc.
