Computer storage, circa 1956

And now for something completely different...

This is what 4MB of computer storage looked like in 1956. This monster from IBM called the called the IBM 350 disk storage unit weighed over a ton and cost $3200 a month in 1956 era dollars.

Makes you appreciate your $80 4GB thumb-sized USB drives, doesn't it?
All hail the wonders of infidel technology!
