This came across to me via email and I thought it was very interesting. However, instead of posting the text that goes along with the image, I wanted to see if any of you could guess what kind of equipment this is. The first person to get it right earns 10,000 LEET points. If I see that no one is coming close to the answer, I’ll be adding hints to the commenting section of this post.

The first black box?
@utahcon No, but the first hint is that it’s a piece of HARDWARE. One of the first actually.
Woooo! It’s the IBM 305 RAMAC. The first computer with a HDD.
The HDD apparently weighed a ton and only had 5mb of storage.
Am I right?
@Mike I wish you weren’t but yes, you are right. Damn you.
