Cost of the first computer? You have to be more specific.

The earliest computers were room-sized machines that cost millions of dollars. The earliest ones rented for $2700 to $115,000 per month! The first mini computer sold for about $20,000. In 1977, Apple made a home computer and sold it for about $1,200. When I got my first computer, a Commodore 64, in the early 1980s, I paid about $600 for it.
