CAN YOU GUESS, WHAT THIS IS?

Its a hard disk from 1956…. with the volume and size of 5MB memory storage!

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

Makes you appreciate your 4 GB USB drive, doesn't it? (4 gigabytes = 4096 megabytes)
