5MB Hard Disk

How much are you willing to pay for a 5MB Hard Disk now? I supposed you won't even ask for such low memory at all. You can get a 1GB pendrive (or thumbdrive) equivalent to 1000MB easily nowadays.
The picture on the left is a hard disk in year 1956. That was the Volume and Size of a 5MB memory storage. The hard disk drive (HDD) weighed over a ton and stored 5MB of data.

In September 1956, IBM launched the 305 RAMAC (pic below), the first computer with a HDD. Can you believe that? A big sized computer system with only a 5MB capacity.
Let’s appreciate our 1 GB pendrive.
