I would have needed 3000 of my first computer to match the storage of one tablet today

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here’s a thought for the youth of today. The first computer I ever bought that had any real storage was an IBM PC with a 10Mb hard disk. It cost me around £5000, and was revolutionary.

Today you can get a tablet with more than 30Gb of memory for around £500.

I would have needed 3000 IBM PCs to match the storage of one tablet. It would have cost me £16,000,000; or conservatively, £32,000,000 in today’s money.

I should have waited.
