I have to share this.
Call me crazy but for me it's beautiful and I'm gonna hold on to it

I just found the hard disk drive of my first pc (I think it was a 80286 purchased early in the 1990's? Not sure)
First is a neat picture I found online of the exact same model.
Then a real photo of it, and 2 photos on an accurate scale (I wanted to know its weight lol nearly 3kg... and it fits an entire 80 Mb of data
)
