I guess fidelity is not an issue when data is easily recoverable
(refetchable, or datacentres redundancy). I once read that Intel's chips
cost $50 to make so these motherboard can probably be bought by the pound.
How do you know when a computer like that is running out of space? Would you
get an message saying "warning: your hard-drive is over 90% full. You have
only 350,000 gigabytes left"?
