Re: Ah, but

You could get an 8 bit ISA card which had a 30 MB hard drive to fit in one of the Amstrad 1640s ISA slots - similar to Intel's Optane 900p PCIE drive. Well when I say similar it has a spinning metal hard drive mounted on a ISA hard drive controller card and it took up an expansion slot - so not totally dissimilar but IOPS were not in the same range.....
