  1. As someone that once paid almost $2,000 for a 5MB hard disk, this brings back some good memories…

  2. it’s amazing how far we’ve come and how much prices have gone down. even the size of these drives have been significantly reduced over the years.

  3. Way back in the early 80s this man came to my high school with a 10″ diameter metal thing that looked like an unexploded land mine. It was black, about 4 or 5 inches thick, if I recall correctly, and had a removable cover, and probably weighed about seven or eight pounds. He said it was a hard drive and its memory capacity was 2.5 Mb. We were stunned: What was a Megabyte, anyway? Unfathomable then. Our 5 1/4″ floppies only held 150 kilobytes — if they worked. Though this was an improvement over the 10″ Floppy. Anyway, the man said, “Some day, these things will hold 10 megabytes’ worth of data.” We laughed at the man. 10 megabytes? Like we’d ever need that much…
