I would like to know how much early PC hard drives cost but have only been aable to find adjacent or unsourced data.
According to the Centre for Computing History:
The "IBM 5161 Expansion Chassis" came with one 10 MB hard disk and allowed the installation of a second hard disk.
According to a user of the Vintage Computer Forum, the 5161 cost $2,881 in December 1983. I have not been able to find out how much a second hard drive cost.
A 5MB hard disk drive from Apple cost $3,500 in 1981.
They do not provide a source for that claim.
How much did the first hard drives for the IBM PC or Apple || cost, and how big were they?
