Why are old people so obsessed with hard drive size?

#1SUPER3METROIDXPosted 2/7/2014 7:53:18 PM(edited)
So my dad recently got a new computer and completely ignored any advice I gave or allowing me to build one for him.
I asked him what he got and he got some $800 computer.
It had a measly dual core i3 and a gt 610. I tried to get him to take it back but he says it has a 1 TERARABYTE drive so that means it's amazing.
And i see lot of other people with the same attitude. Where did this come from? Why will old people buy computers simply cause of having a cheap 1TB drive?

lol. Yes, old = stupid. We know nothing. It's not like that computer could play most of what you want to play.

You realize that when you go to buy a car, no matter how much you've researched the car, some car nut is gonna tell you you're uneducated and a moron for buying it.


See how that works with everything?

Dumb dumbs... Dumb dumbs e'rywhere.

Some people listen to logic, others don't. Just move along with the latter.

As per usual around here, this is a terrible car analogy. It doesn't even apply since you didn't post anything a "car nut" would tell you, and if you researched the car you'd be able to speak with them on an educated level. That's different than what the TC's dad did, since it takes about a 30 second google search to find out the size of a HDD doesn't matter. Completely different than if you went in to talk about the performance of a car. What you're implying is if that happened but someone still only cared about the fuel tank size.

The hard drive is probably the least important component of a computer, even for gaming. What the hell do you need 1000GB for anyway? Some crazy obsession with hoarding games maybe?

What you call obsession, I call convenience. People pay extra for convenience all the time but I suppose they are all obsessed as well.
