Comparison of hard disk, 20 years ago till now

The following is a picture of a 1 GB hard disk manufactured in 1987 that was brought forward during one of the recent IT exhibition in Murska Sobota, Slovenia.

Compare that with the 1 GB flashdrive that the guy is holding up.

1 GB comparison

10 years ago, my Quantum Fireball SE cost me a whopping $360 for a measly 4.3 GB diskspace.

Now, with $360, one can just go down to a computer retail outlet and purchase a new SATA-HDD (Seagate) with 750 GB of disk-space !!

Seagate Barracuda

750 GB!!!! Enough to last you a life-time I guess. Unless if you start to rip HD-DVD and Blu-Ray disc to your PC 😛

What? 750 GB enough to last you a lifetime? I have about that much spread over 3 harddisks… And they’re running out of space already.

Are you sure? 😛

@Zul,

The next time I see you again, pass me a bit of that stash of pr0n that you keep it under your C:\Windows\temp\xxx\hidden folder hor.

If not enough, I bring my DVD writer along. Hehe just kidding bro. 😛

Dude, it’s not p0-rn nor any XXX-rated stuff that he keeps. It’s mostly animeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. :p

ah mampos! peh besau tu benda! 1gb ajer summore! sungguh tak worth the weight and looks.. tak hensem sak.hehehe

Erm, 404 Folder Not Found. Wahahahhahaha.

Bring your DVD writer for what? I got a DVD writer too. And a 120GB 2,5″ USB harddisk. Hahahahah.

Suhaila, it’s not anime, actually… It’s mostly TV shows. I have the whole 10 seasons of Friends, the whole 10 seasons of Stargate SG-1, seasons of Battlestar Galactica, Ghost Whisperer, Prison Break, Doctor Who, a whole bunch of movies… Hahaha.

But don’t tell anyone okay? Shhhhh….
