1GB, 800MB? 500MB? Eee, you were lucky!
When I was at University, learning to code in the mid 70s, they had these massive de-mountable disk packs which, if I remember rightly, had a capacity of 2MB each! You needed special permission to use them.
I remember paying £250 for a 256MB hard drive.
I found an old PC magazine from about 1982 a few years ago, and worked out that if a machine had been available then with the spec of my laptop at the time, it would have cost about £50 million - in 1982 money! Lord knows how much my present phone would have set you back!
