Size of 1GB

Here is a nice picture that a friend of mine sent to me:


It shows an IBM 1GB hard disk (yes, that huge, bulky thing is actually a hard disk drive) manufactured in late 80s. On top left is a hand holding the modern version of 1GB, a 1GB SD card. It gives us an idea of how much advancement the computer hardware industry has gone through the last two decades.

  1. If that's a 3380 it is from '79 -80, not the late 80's.


I'd love to hear from you !
