    as stated in the title This the first STORED PROGRAM computer. it doesn't claim to be the first computer. The von neuman computer or IAS computer developed at princeton university used the same memory used with this one, the Williams tube. it stored a grid of "spots" 32 wide by 32 down becoming the ubiquitious 1032 bits (1k) of storage.
    [from the book by G.Dyson Turings cathederal]

    The work of Turing being very important to all stored program concepts
