August 1, 1989: Apple introduces its Macintosh SE update, complete with new FDHD “SuperDrive” — capable of handling High Density floppy drives, with an astonishing 1.4MB of storage.
While a tiny amount by today’s standards, HD floppy disks compared very favorably to both the regular 400KB Single Side Double Density (SSDD) disks and 800KB Double Side Double Density (DDSD) disks available at the time. In terms of portable storage, it was a big step up for most Mac owners.
