Acer Travelmate with 2 hard drives??

Hello to all,

I just bought an Acer Travelmate notebook, model 4654 LMi, which is a Centrino 2.0 , 1 GB Ram, 128 shared video memory and 100 GB hard drive.

I just realized that it actually has 2 hard drives instead of one, both hard drives are 47 GB each, one of them is loaded with windows and the rest of the programs, the other one is still empty.

What do you think about that?

Is it good or bad to have 2 HDD instead of one?

Any feedback or opinions will be appreaciated.

Perhaps you have a single hard drive.....

partitioned into two virtual drives?

How Do I check it?

Thanks Michael,

Now, how do I check that?

Your manual will tell,

but you could eject the drive from the laptop body to verify how many there are.

I do not know of any that come with more then one drive.

Another way is to look in Device Manager under Disk Drives.

You are right Michael, it is only 1 HD.
I don't know why they sell it as a 100 GB HD, it is actually 93 GB.

By the way, I just checked the processor details here in my laptop and it says Bus Speed 133 MHZ, but in the web page it says CPU FSB 533 MHZ.

I don't know what is going on. Maybe they are different things, but I'm worry about it.

Any ideas?

Yeah, your CPU runs on a multiple of that clock speed.

How do you like the notebook? I am thinking about buying one. Where did you buy yours from? Does it seem well built?
