Idk man
Unless you're running like, windows 98, your OS would take up an insane amount if not all of that 1gb.

I used to have a floppy disk with pics of naked random biches. Only like 20 pics fit on it. Good times good times.

I remember having to use floppy disks as a kid.

Now you can store 10x's + the amount of data on something as small as a corn flake.

I love the evolution of electronics.

I had a zx Spectrum 16k which took about 5 mins to load games from a cassette. While riding on the back of my T-Rex.

Now now, no need for names, old age happens to us all, it's how you handle it that counts. And 21 is old to teenagers so we are all old to someone :)

Yeah, I agree... I feel old when I'm around teenagers.
I've already had the 'back in when I was your age we had this..." conversation.

Actually it's more than that even.

A 3 1/2" High Density Floppy disk in 1987 help 1440KB
That is equivalent to 0.00144 GB

For $19.99 you can purchase a 32GB USB Drive the size of a corn flake. (roughly)

That's 980,842.911 times bigger than the 3 1/2" Floppy Disk.


Keep in mind there are 128GB drives of this size (not available to the general public.. cheaply) and 64 GB drives available (but more costly)

I was talking about "corn flake sized" which the largest drive size is 128GB still in testing.

I know because some of my associates are working with Kingston/Patriot on them.

Super Smash Bros Brawl is an awesome game, as is Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword (Both are easy as **** but still great)

Many more awesome Wii games.

And yes, I do own another gaming console but I play mostly on the pc

I'm more than happy with my 2 year old laptop that runs tf2 at 30 fps in a 12 inch widescreen screen.
I am just happy that I am able to play online games with it.
