    Any reason why you blocked out your bf from that pic? :p

    Not a bad review, though I'd follow the traditional format if you wish to be paid (I believe?) for it.

    By request: photo of the inside of a 6930G laptop, showing two hdd bays:

    Yes, it will easily take a standard 2.5" HDD. The interface is SATA. I checked with a spare drive I had.

    Only one small problem though:

    The cover has two largish plastic support struts poking up which means you can't reinstall the cover without breaking them off (they hit the drive). I'm not about to experiment with a client machine, but it looks to me like they're not gonna come off easily either. Maybe with a pair of pliers.

    There are two versions of this 2nd HDD cover, one allows for the 2nd HDD to be present the other does not. I imagine those lugs are part of the difference between the two.

    It's a 6930G, client machine so it's not mine. Not sure where I'd find the exact specs for this particular model. From building it, Intel chipset, nvidia 9600M video, realtek and nvidia sound, 320gb primary hdd, no secondary, 2.4ghz cpu, 3gb RAM, Intel wireless, Atheros LAN, Sayen webcam.

    Used to be Vista Home Premium but it's now XP, and it was a bugger tracking down all the drivers.

    I'm not overly fond of Acer machines, and the main reasons why are Acer's terrible driver download pages (although these have improved in recent months) and their lack of support for WinXP.

    Personally, I prefer Vista since it runs much more stable and smooth compared to XP. But I believe someone in the Acer forum put together all the drivers for XP in a post.

    Thx for the info techperson .

    I really hope my laptop also has room for an extra HDD .

    Sucks that i don't have a stupid screwdriver lying around to take a quick look .

    Ah well , even if i had room i still would have waited untill SSD prices came down .
