RE: Realization and a Painful Bite

Yikes, that is really crazy. It is amazing even in this day and age how huge of an impact hard drives can have. I personally try to avoid anything that isn't an SSD these days. I know that to get the cost down you have to sacrifice space, but with most stuff being stored on the cloud these days it isn't a huge deal. I hope this fixes it for you!

I really hope to too! I would have loved to buy an SSD to completely rid my system of hard drives but the one I need to replace is 1TB. So with my price limit in mind, I chose to go with a 2TB HDD. It's crazy that the price difference between 1TB and 2TB is only around $10 of making this, and the 2 is still almost cheaper than a 500GB SSD.

It is definitely crazy. I remember a time when RAM was about a dollar per MB.
