Harddisk of old time

Apr 19, 2007 7 comments
Since our school days, we are taught generations of computer and so we learnt about vacuum tubes, which were as large as room or even bigger than a compartment to say. But , what about Harddisk.

This is a mere 5 MB harddisk used during 1956. But considering our brain which is equivalent to only 1 or 2 MB for storing information(as i read somewhere), 5 MB was indeed an adequate option for information storage at that time.

Now, i possess 80 GB while there are already 200 GB to 750 GB harddisks in the market.
