Guess What This Is? And don't cheat!!
Hint: picture was taken in 1956...

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. Yes... 5 MEGA bytes. Back then,,,this was da shit.
Do you appreciate your 8 GB memory stick a little more now?
