Okay, How could eigher of you had a 55RPM or a 55000RPM. 55RPM seems too slow to have existed beyond the early 80's, which was before I was even born. And 55000RPM if futuristic. I have not seen a HD with more then 15000RPM.

They're just exaggerating... 55RPM drives have NEVER existed. I think early drives in the 70s and 80s were 1700RPM IIRC.

I got a 733mhz PII gateway in 97-98 with a 30GB 7200rpm drive. It wasnt a particularly extravagent model either...

No you didn't... They didn't have a 733MHZ CPU back in '97 and I know this for a fact, let alone a PII... A 733MHZ CPU would have been around late 1999-2000..

they became common after about 1999, when 20GB and 40GB were common sizes

What about drives with 8ms average seek time? Remember I'm talking about IDE drives and not SCSI drives...
That was still a noticable difference in price until about late 2001 between 5400 and 7200 rpm

B.S.!!!!!

P-II stopped at 550Mhz. They never got highter that that. And they were the fastest processors in 1998.

There is no way that you could of had a 733 Mhz CPU back then.

AS for 30Gb hard drive...... DON'T THING SO. I remember 1999, and 20Gb was the BIGGEST thing that you could get.

BTW, I have been working in the computer hardware service and repair since 1997, so you might want to be careful on who you think you are fooling there.
