    I still remember going to an Amiga Expo in 1988, and they had a 1Gig hard drive for sale at a meager $12,000 US.

    Wow 22 years later price went down $11,985. Then again that could be an antique by now.

    About 15 years ago my parents bought our first "good" computer... it was a packard bell. 32 megs ram and a 1g hard drive.

    My mom had the best comment...

    "it has a one gig hard drive!!! we will never fill that up!"

    HAHAHA ahhhhh that makes me laugh.

    My first comp was a TRASH-80. I loved that thing. Didn't know I was learning to be a programmer at 8 yrs old, I just thought I was following instructions and making cool colors and sounds

    I actually had (up until a year ago) an old 40mb (not gigabyte...megabyte) hard drive that was about the same size as that one gig in the picture you posted. Yes, it sure has been great seeing the improvement in technology. Who knows what the future will hold..

    I can't believe you just cited one of your High School's book requirements.
    I'd rather be on two wheels.
