Suppose you had some kind of memory storage device which could store 1 gigabyte in a 1 millimeter by 1 millimeter square. Then your whole system would occupy a field 130 meters by 130 meters. Or you could go 3-D -- suppose you have a 1 GB device 1 millimeter by 1 millimeter by 1 millimeter.
And just think how long it would take for the POST to count all that! :-) You'd need a pretty fast CPU too..
