So what's special about "electronic" computers?

Isn't this just a mere technological refinement?  Logic gates can be 
electrical, electronic, pneumatic, hydraulic and photonic--and probably 
a few technologies that I haven't thought of.

In the game of firsts, where does Torres y Quevedo's "El Ajedrecista" 
fit in?  It would seem to have memory and perform actions based on inputs.
