Back in 1997, I got my first IBM computer. I still remember the hard disk spec is 4.3GB. That is equivalent to one Bluray Disc Movie. Oh.. the brand is Quantum Bigfoot. AND I have a roller ball mouse too. Phew, I can’t believe I actually have such a good memory.
Operating on Window 95, most of the file sizes are relatively small. Even my first digital camera captured images with only 16MB memory card. Playing games is not a problem and 4.3GB was considered sufficient for that period of time.
After spending a few hours in Low Yat, I finally came to a conclusion to get 1TB Western Digital Hard drive. Yes, that is a lot bigger than 4.3GB. This is the side effect of taking a lot of RAW photos recently. Most of my hard drives are full with my photos.
Due to lack of organizing skills, I tend to get at least 1 x hard drive a year or probably more. This time round, I spent about RM 368 for a piece of pocket size hard disk. Silver is my favourite color but you get to choose other colors too. With USB 3.0, transferring photos will be a lot quicker.
Considering that the hard disk is slightly below my budget, I decided to get a mousy which cost about RM 70. Not my necessity but I need something more reliable than ball type mouse. With one single AA batt, the wireless mouse can last for 18 months.
Believe it or not? I will tell you after 18 months but it is looking good so far. Again, I get to expose to another new piece of technology, Logitech Nano Unify receiver. This small dongle will allow you to connect up to 6 wireless devices. Which means, I can still get additional 5 gadgets.. Hooray.. )
