$40,000 Hard Drive

`Back in 1985, hard drives were gigantic and not to mention insanely expensive (40MB/$40,000) as shown in the above image. That was coincidentally the same year Microsoft released Windows 1.0 which sold for $100 ($177.47 with inflation) a piece. I like how the display behind it has a huge magnifying glass that almost makes you think hard drives now days (2006) are microscopic which they really aren’t…yet.’
