by "computers" I'm assuming you have the modern computer in mind. That is, the digital computer.

As Ned Block notes, we could make a computer out of an "elaborate system of cats and mice and cheese and make our gates in such as way that the cat will strain at the leash and pull open a gate which we can also treat as if it were a 0 or 1." (Searle)

So really it was inevitable. Let me tell you many historians dislike these kinds of questions -- what ifs. I don't bother to think about them myself. Though, one could come up with a list of things of how it would be diffrent if the digital computer were not invented, such as, accounting would be much more troublesome, and so on.

I wouldn't feel anything for it since it never existed. But if I somehow travelled back in time when no computers existed, that would be hell. -_-

^i remember the times when you had to get a copy of a copy,..etc of an anime on vhs,so it was really hard,but i think it was a much more thrill to finally get a copy,so its a ying and yang thing,i guess.today everything is so easy to get,that is great,but it takes away the indiana jones aspect.
