Gadda Have it. Diane J DJ Lost IBM hard Drive hits 75 Gigs

03.18.00 -- IBM unveiled a disk drive that the world's largest computer maker said set records for data storage. Big Blue said their new hard drive can hold information from a stack of documents more than two miles high. IBM said in a statement its 7,200 rpm Deskstar 75GXP drive for desktop computers can hold 75 gigabytes of data, more than 10 times the capacity of drives found in the average home personal computer. In other words a single one of the new drives can now store the equivalent of up to 159 music compact discs. Imagine the amount of MP3s that hard drive could hold.
