It's still only really video content (inc game assets) and virtual machines that swallow up huge tracts of disk space. Music's edging towards 100GB but that is over nearly a couple of decades.

If memory serves the first hard drive I encountered outside of education was 20MB and in a friend's inherited Archimedes A420. First PC (Win98 first edition) after sadly coming to the conclusion that Acorn was an evolutionary dead end I think was 6.4Gb-ish.

And now things have come around with the generally pathetic, often non-expandable storage capacities offered by most tablets...
