Computer Hard Drive Space vs Memory by doctormo Computer Hard Drive Space vs Memory by doctormo
This is a quick image based on an analogy which I'm sure others have thought of. But here I try and show the conceptual difference between a computer's hard drive and a computer's memory.

And this applies to any computer. All the way from your mobile phone to the gigantic building sized computers used for predicting the weather.

I anyone wants a supped up one for a poster, let me know and I put in some shading and enable the poster function.

This is perhaps the most understandable analogy I've seen yet.

You've spotted one of the concepts I've hidden in the design for a later explanation. Can you get all 5? ;-)
