The trusty old conventional hard drive still has life despite all these years, it’s crazy to think that its lasted since 1956 (only 5MB!). I laugh and remember my youth, I was so young and I think it was in the late 1990’s that my uncle got me to help him build his new 386 computer from scratch. Back in the 386 PC days things were still big and bulky, my gosh it’s been so long ha-ha.
I remember my uncle had a bunch of old computers, he had a 286 computer that had a massive 5.25-inch metal brick of a hard drove, that one could kill if thrown at someone! When my uncle got me to help him build his 386, those hard drives were the 3.5″ IDE variety, still new at that time, I don’t remember the exact capacity but it was I think under 1GB.
