    That's about 10 floppies.

    If u do the math, a 500 gig hard drive if bought back then would cost 99 million 900 thousand dollars. Basicly 100 million dollars.

    My first computer was a radio shack coco, that's short for a color computer, like some of todays game machines, it had to be hooked up to the tv. It was an 8808 processor with 4 k of ram. I paid 800.00 for it. No floppy, no hard drive no mouse. Sort of like a mac. Here's a picture.
