Interesting... although I think that it wouldn't have made a huge difference simply because there have been other limiting factors - primarily the limitations of chip fabrication in terms of process size and density of transistors - and for that matter, even the invention of integrated circuits themselves.
The difference between a hard drive and an early magnetic tape is like the difference between a modern car and a Ford Model T.
