    How many gigs of storage to do you have?

    I was practicly laughed out of a classroom when this question was asked. I am still running my 3 year old Maxtor, 40GB. When everybody else has multiple 200GB hard drives .

    So how many gigs in total do you have?

    160 on the home PC.

    Portable storage is so cheap anymore, so what's the big deal? Just get yourself something to plug into the USB port and voila... extra space.

    I have a 30 & a 6 GIG HD on my machine. I have about 6 GIG on the 30, the smaller unit is empty... and I just 'upgraded' and added the 30 too.

    Home PC: 120+250 + 250 (External) = 620Gb (.62 TB)

    Still relatively small compared to others I know of at the computer forum I hang out at sometimes.

    • 500GB on my PC, spread over 3 physical drives and several logicals.
    • 350GB on #2 son's PC on a couple physical drives.
    • 360GB on #1 son's PC, 80GB on his Powerbook.
    • 160GB on wife's PC on 2 physical drives.
    My first assembled PC in 1992, had a 130MB Maxtor, and we wondered what we'd ever do with all that space!

    36GB primary HDD. But it's the latest-generation 15000rpm SCSI. Quality over quantity. Ok yeah, I also have a 200GB SATA drive (with 6GB in use). But don't tell anyone!

    At my parents' place, we still have a Mac SE in service since 1988 that has the original 8 MHz Motorola 68000, 1 MB RAM, and 20 MB hard drive. I once acquired four 1 MB RAM sticks for it (in the late 90's when it was essentially free), but never got around to installing it since it didn't really need more than 1 MB RAM. (Why would it need more RAM? It ran MS Word and MS Powerpoint just fine. It ran our spreadsheet application just fine.)
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    My 1990 PC "AT" (16 MHz, 1MB RAM, 40MB hard drive) is still around and going strong. It was passed to may parents, who then passed it to my brother, who then passed it to his (then) wife's sister which is where it still resides (last I heard). It is now basically a computer to play kids learning games for her daughter. 16 years and still going strong.

    Obviously before your time as you got the size wrong for the disk you are showing.

    That is a 5 1/4" disk which was 360Kb(Double Density), then HD (High Density) came out and was 1.2Mb.

    It was the 3 1/2" disks that were 720Kb (DD) and then 1.44Mb (HD).

    Anybody remember the 8" floppies? I used to have to deal with them in high school on TRS-80s, and on a main frame Sperry computer I worked on in a job just after high school.

    Sorry, I was having a retro moment.

    Ahhh, my Sinclair ZX-81 used one of those. It had 1 kilobyte of RAM. Or was it 2 kilobytes? I forget now.
