Acer Travelmate with 2 hard drives??

by roh / September 4, 2005 10:50 AM PDT

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.

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?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
