    My first Hardrive was the GVP Impact II. The best hardrive you could get for the CBM Amiga 500. It had 48Mb of disk space and i had 2 Meg of fast ram expansion pack that was never ever used.

    Cost a whopping £400 way back in 1991.
    Playing Monkey Island 1 and 2 on here was worth it alone considering Monkey Island 2 came on 11 Floppys. Dragons Lair was another that benefitted.

    8.4 gigs Maxtor Diamondmax in a 1998 or 99 vintage desktop custom built by a company in California called NuTrend. The system also had a Pentium III 450mhz CPU, An ATI Rage Fury 32mb video card, 64mb RAM, and a Soundblaster PCI 128 sound card. The MB was a Diamond Flower model. All top end or near top end stuff at the time. I never even filled that HDD half way.

    It ran Windows 98SE.

    I'm pretty sure it was 25 MB. On an IBM 486 SX with 2 MB RAM.
    My friend had a 386 SX (IBM too) and our computer felt so "fast" in comparison...

    Never had other computers before that one, we (our family) waited for quite some time before finally deciding to get a PC.

    Me the first HDD that I have ever used was one of them HDD on a card for the Tandy 1000 and it was a 40mb drive too and man that thing was expensive at the time. Then I used drives that went all over the capacity spectrum.

    I think my first hard drive was 10MB - but prior to that I had cassettes and 5¼ inch floppies without a hard drive.
