The first Apple branded hard disk drive for an Apple computer was a unit called Profile and had a capacity of 5MB. It used a winchester technology based Seagate/Shugart 5MB (ST-506) drive mechanism. I remember it well. Its successor, a 10MB version had a horrendous drive failure rate. I remember that one especially well.

The first hard disk drive was actually invented by IBM in 1956. It was an open air system.
