that was 20 years ago. now I have 8 gb of ram and 1 tb harddrive, although harddrives are going obsolete and being replaced by ssds

8 gigs ram with 2 tb hardrive, and it probably cost the same as the computer Chandler has

SSDs are solid state drives right?
User avatar #117 to #116 - zeroxnight (06/03/2013) [-]
yes

i was at staples and a 50 gb ssd was like 200 bucks...
User avatar #119 to #118 - zeroxnight (06/03/2013) [-]
maybe one day it will be feasible to get, given our data storage demands and pricing issues

ill stick with my 5 tb rig for now

buy it on newegg. Got my 120gb Corsair SSD for about 120 bucks. You can get 240gb SSD's for under 200 bucks on sale nowadays.

yeah i buy it all from newegg too. 120 gb isn't enough to store all of my porn. i just bought a 4 tb hdd for a desktop
User avatar #163 to #162 - theist (06/03/2013) [-]
yea of course. I have a 3tb external drive and 1tb internal for movies, games (steam mostly) and all the other **** . Within the next half decade though I'm assuming the majority of drives will be SSD (I hope).

If only SSDs were a tad more affordable. Saying that in 2 years it won't be much of a problem I hope..

if SSD's had larger capacities and were more affordable, they'd be great.

But nope, HDD's are becoming obsolete and will be replaced by the cloud. IMO, people will have HDD's/SSD's but everything will be on the cloud

I'm slowly moving towards the idea of cloud. SkyDrive has actually saved me once or twice. I just have 						******					 down and even 						********					 up where I live. Fibreoptics not for another 2 years plus. I think you're ultimately right. I am however once of those guys that always likes a solid, physical backup just in case.   
   
The upside is HDDs are so cheap now that a 4TB is barely over £100 and I can use it to record stuff from my TV straight on to it.   
   
tl;dr I agree with you. Have some Olivia Wilde is she floats your boat.

As a tech that know many who use cloud one of the things they say is:

"Can you fix it? I lost all of my stuff because their site got closed down or something."

And they are not liable for what you lost.

I get the feeling we'll see people using the cloud a lot more, and it'll be a case of "Keep important and private stuff on your own storage device just in case the internet has issues, but for everything else, keep it on the cloud"

**** "the cloud". Piece of **** excuse for primary storage. And **** SSDs too, overpriced piles of ass.
User avatar #47 to #46 - fukkendragonite (06/03/2013) [-]
Right now they are yeah. Eventually they'll go down in price. Problem with SSD's are the lack of capacity with them, not the price.
User avatar #113 to #47 - zeroxnight (06/03/2013) [-]
I feel the same way, but their are hybrid ssds that are a fusion of the 2 with 1 tb of storage at 100 dollars. Although I feel that they are more HDD than SSD. still a good price.

The 'cloud' is terrible. Slow and insecure.
The only real upside to SSDs is that they're faster.
User avatar #80 to #71 - fukkendragonite (06/03/2013) [-]
I think the cloud has potential to work well though. It's all about innovation. Besides, nothing new ever works first time. Remember 3D and how it didn't work properly first time, but they worked on it and the original technology provided a basis for a properly functioning system? Was it not the same with photography, when it originally took several hours to take the photograph? Alright the last one is going back a bit but the point still stands.

There is no good enough use to make it more popular or even close to the popularity level of data drives.
User avatar #90 to #83 - fukkendragonite (06/03/2013) [-]
Fair enough. I guess time will tell.
