So, the other day, I was digging through some of my old stuff.. and found my old computer that I bought back in 1998 (yes 1998. It's already older than some people reading this). It was a compaq presario. Let's see if I can remember the specs.
Pentium 2 Processor 700 Mhz
64 MB SD RAM ( at least that's what I think it is)
8 GB IDE HDD
No graphics card.
Then I took a look inside my current computer, and decided to take the following pics.
Exhibit 1 : The different types of memory devices I have now
Exhibit 2 : Two Drives, of nearly the same space. Take a look at the difference in size. Also, the one on the left weighs about 3 pounds.. and has two solid aluminum plates about a quarter inch thick each. (Oh, the exact space of each drive after formatting is IDE = 7.45 GB, and Flash = 7.56 GB)
Exhibit 3 : I held them both in my hands just to give you guys a perspective of how big each is.
And finally Exhibit 4 : The actual Processor. I put my mouse into the frame to show you actually how big it is.
Technology. You gotta love it.
PS : I kept the 8 GB Hard Drive. It's an antique! Also a possible murder weapon. (threw out the cabinet though)
