You’ll never guess

Guess What This Is? And don't peek right away!!

Hint: picture was taken in 1956...
Answer below...









It's a hard disk drive back in 1956 ... With 5 MB of storage.
In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first 'SUPER' computer with a hard disk drive (HDD).
The HDD weighed over a ton and stored a 'whopping' 5 MB of data.
Do you appreciate your 8 GB memory stick a little more now?
