Hard drives in 1980

In 1980 a 10 MB hard drive would cost you adjusted for inflation $9,829. Thats $983 per MB. Today with that money you can buy 96 hard drives with a store capacity of 3TB each. Making a total of 288 million MB storage capacity with a cost per MB of $0.000034. If the price per MB had been maintained for the last 34 years, todays 3TB hard drives would cost one billion dollars. That's the price of two Airbus A380 planes or the Chicago Cubs franchise.
