Laptop drive

(viewed 1275 times)

This is the old 4 GB drive from my Toshiba. On the left you can see the IDE pins (normal width) on the right are the four power pins. You'd need to check Toshiba's web-site for the power pin-out, but it should be doable. Alternatively, you could buy a cheap USB drive enclosure and have your current drive as an external back-up to any new laptop :)

I think it's a trip to PC world or Maplins after the school run for me!!

You know, there was a time when a 4 GB drive was huge. Now if I had a 4 GB drive, it would probably be flash memory, and the only place I would think of sticking it would be in my camera :D

I remember getting an 80mb external drive for my old Mac, and thinking "we'll never manage to fill that!"

Currently, 75gb of my 80gb drive is full...

showing my age now, but I had a 20meg drive in my first PC, which was on a card and slotted into the back of the machine like Modern PCI slots =/

I remember getting excited about 20 Mb external Mac drives :)

My first PC didn't have a hard drive, just a a pair of 5.25" floppies :D (I can see this getting very Monty Python very quickly)

I had a "Dragon 32" I think that was what it was called anyway.

I remember the Dragon 32. I had a Commodore 64 (when I told the salesperson that I wanted to buy one, he said "but, you'll never use all that memory", i.e. 64 KB) :D

That's quite a venerable collection. I played with a friend's ZX81, but never owned one :)
