Hard Drives Of Yore

1980 hard drive

By David Ponce

It’s fun to look back. Like, when you find out just how far we’ve come. In the picture here, you see an ad for a 10MB hard drive, back in 1980. It’s a refurbished model, though they also made’em brand new, at $4,495. That’s $8,876 and $11,415 in today’s adjusted dollars, respectively.

Also, take a look at another mainframe hard drive from 1985. Sexy little number, that one.

To put things in perspective, here’s where you can carry 16GB nowadays.

Fun stuff, eh?
