Thank goodness for Moore’s Law, eh? If it wasn’t for the continual march of technological progress we would still be paying a fortune for a piece of hardware like this. $2495 doesn’t even get you a working product. You’ll also need an installation kit for the low, low price of $495.

All this for a disk that can store 50 times less data than a CD! A quick search online couldn’t find any conventional hard disk for more than $1000 now, and they have up to 1TB of storage. We look forward to picking up a 60,000 Terabyte drive for $250 in 20 years’ time.
