Guess What This Is?

I will give you a hint – the photo was taken in 1956.


It’s a hard disk drive With 5 MBof storage.

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first ‘SUPER’ computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a ‘whopping’ 5 MB of data.


Do you appreciate your 8 GB memory stick a little more now?

    My aunt would always tell us when she worked on computers they took up a whole room, yet she was scared to work on a regular computer! I would be intimidated by the large one she worked at. 😉 I will never complain about my thumb drive ever again!! LOL
