40MB Hard Drive, only $40,000! (Fixed Loop)

40MB Hard Drive, only $40,000! (Fixed Loop)
To answer the often-repeated question, the 6gb drive in the back is a flash drive, which is actually very tiny, hence the price tag. Thanks to MasterSitsu for helping with the fixed loop!

probably missing something obvious here, but wtf is with the other sign? you could pick up a 6gb hard drive for 10 bucks nowadays.

I think the 6GB is referring to flash memory, ixian.

Notice the magnifying glass? Whatever that 6GB drive is, it's very small. Can't make it out in this picture though. Flash memory, maybe, like Ministry said. And, uh, not Capt. Murphy.

Ha ha... well the average price for hardrive space today is in the area of 1 dollar per gigabyte. So in today's pricing the memory of that 40mb harddrive is worth 4 cents. That means today it costs 0.0001% of its original cost

Dr.Tongue, it's more around 35 cents per gigabyte.

It's definitely RAM, not an HDD.

sheldon is dumb. "that episode"? of sealab? The song is from the early 80's. LaCie's terrabyte drives are usually 2 drives in a single external case... but there are drives much much bigger not aimed at the consumer.

If you pay attention, the comparison isn't just price, it's size. The 6gb Harddrive is whicked tiny, hence the Magnifying Glass.
