The Quiz: Released in 1980, the first 1GB hard disk drive was the size of what?
In 1980, IBM introduced the world’s first 1GB hard drive, but it was not available for at-home use as they are today. The drive was a whopping 550 pounds and the size of a refrigerator, a far cry from the “memory cards” that we use now. The 3380 hard drive came with a hefty price tag — $40,000. Today, a 1GB memory card is rather obsolete. Typically, they’re sold in sizes from 8GB to 2 TB, with a price tag starting around $10.
The correct answer to this quiz is Refrigerator.
