Guess What This Is????

Hint: picture was taken in 1956...

Answer below...

It's a hard disk drive back in 1956... With 5 MB of 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 just 'whopping' 5 MB of data.

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