when 8.4MB hard drives were $4500.00
Ever think your computer is slow or out of date? Check this out.
Above: The TRS-80 "8.4 Million Bytes of Data" hard disk system. You could SAVE files (gasp!) and even RESTORE files (double gasp!) Frickin' amazing!
Well, back then it was. And it was as expensive as a compact car in those days.
Just for comparison, if you have a small (by today's standards) 20 gigabyte hard drive, that's 20,000,000,000 bytes (twenty billion).
Were you to buy a 20GB hard drive (if you could even find one), it's about, oh, fifteen bucks. 🙂
