Hard drive was firstly introduced to the market by IBM on September 13, 1956. It was first used in the RAMAC 305 system, with a storage capacity of 5 MB and a cost of about $50,000 ($10,000 per megabyte). This drive was built-in to the computer and was not removable.
In 1963, IBM developed the first removable hard drive, having a 2.6 MB storage capacity. The first hard drive to have a storage capacity of one gigabyte was also developed by IBM in 1980. It weighed 550-pounds and cost $40,000. 1983 marked the introduction of the first 3.5-inch size hard drive, developed by Rodime.
It had a storage capacity of 10 MB. Seagate was the first company to introduce a 7200 RPM hard drive in 1992. Seagate also introduced the first 10,000 RPM hard drive in 1996 and the first 15,000 RPM hard drive in 2000.
