This is the IBM 305 RAMAC, the very first computer to contain a hard disc drive.  It weighed over a ton and stored….WAIT FOR IT…5 MBs OF DATA!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you kidding me?

I have a flash drive smaller than my thumb that holds 8 GBs.

For those of us doing math, that’s 1,600 times as much data.

I’ll wait now, while you mull that.

Is your mind blown?  If not…it well and truly should be.
