I added code tags to make it easier to read. There are actually multiple compiler errors in there. Please post the exact error message in addition to the code.

To get you started, count the "{" and "}" to make sure they match. You should have the same # of ech.

Do not use int to hold dates. An int is an integer number, it's not suitable to hold a date.

Do you realize what happens in these lines?

You are computing 23 divided by 1 divided by 2012, with integer division. The result of that computation will be 0. So you're passing the value 0 for the date to the constructor of class Computer. All three Computer objects with have their date set to 0.

Use class java.util.Date to hold a date, not int.

Also: The member variable id (line 14) should not be static. (Why did you make it static?).
