Where can I get a summary that lists the history of HD space/CPU speed
from 1965-present?

You either don't need to know or are asking us to do your
homework for you. Either way, the question is unrealistic,
in '65 punchcards were still being used, hard drives were
very crude and luxurious at that point in time.

You wouldn't need to do any homework unless you're as clueless as I
am.

Your point?

Start with a kickoff article like this. Look for links inline.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History...uting_hardware

There is some stuff here on IBM storage devices. For
example, 1965 was about 7.25MB. But that is for mainframes.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_350#IBM_350

I think in 1982 or so, I might have had a 10MB drive, which
was full height. Not nearly as slim as modern drives.
Sort of like the item in this project. So this
is personal computing. I was able to store 2 years
of work on that drive, because most of what we did
could be stored as small text files.

The graph you are looking for, from he
http://www.kurzweilai.net/meme/frame...s/art0691.html
is titled:
"Moore's Law the Fifth Paradigm"

and it tracks computational velocity from 1900 to 2000.

You can find more detail on a smaller scale he
