Before you get excited about the low, low price for ~10,000,000 bytes of random-access magnetic data storage, make sure you read the fine print. Turns out the $3,495 price is for a refurbished
unit only. The new 10 megabyte hard disk retails for a whopping $4,495. Oh, and there's another catch: the price is in 1980 dollars (US). Adjusted to 2005 dollars, that comes to around $11,415.77. Ouch.
And this isn't one of your 3.5″, half-height 5 1/4″ or even full-height 5 1/4″ hard drives either. No; it's a hulking, old-school, non-Winchester jobbie that takes interchangeable disk cartridges.
I want one.
