"In 1954, engineers at Bell Laboratories created a discrete-transistor-based computer system called the TRADIC. Although it was not quite as fast as the fastest vacuum-tube-based systems of the day, it was much smaller and consumed much less power. More important, it heralded the era of transistor-based computer systems."
