    I took an old hard drive apart and use the platters as really, REALLY shiny coasters for my Apple mug.

    It was 430MB; not some tragic loss, guys.

    what are the "platters"? and my hard drive is 160 GB but the size seems way too small to make a decent coaster

    platter is a synonym for the "disks" in your hard drive.
