is that a second hard drive bay or what?
it's the 2nd...!
try and fit a 2.5" into it and see if it works
it should be it though...
Depends on how many others there are. It could the third, fourth, fifth or whatever.
so your saying some laptops have the option to do 5 hard drives?
Sure, mine can hold 3 and it's just 12". I'm cheating with the docking station then though
Yep, that looks like laptop bay. But looks like you would need solder in a sata power and data adapter in.
so you say yes but needs the adaptors?
you dont count then
I am saying yest but I don't know a whole lot about laptops. But looks to me like there are the power and data headers right there. I don't know how good you are at soldering but that job doesn't look too hard if you find the correct pinouts. Also remember just because there is a spot on the board for another HDD doesn't mean the BIOS will support it.
edit: oops just realized i did the picture backwards. It should be the other way around lol
edit2: ok now its correct. didn't get enough sleep last night
wait is'nt it the other way round?
yes, its early and i am tired. Fixing now.
oh ok I wasn't a n00b then
i thought it was too... lol
i prolly wont add that ports but just wanted to know if that's "where" it would have gone.
i got this machine for $250 lol
Im not complaining
Dang, that that sounds like an awesome deal. Defintely beats my acer laptop I bought for $400 at best buy like 6 months ago. I got a pretty good deal.
That solder job looks very doable, even for me. But I probably wouldn't do it either. Maybe in a few years when the laptop is old and got a new one I would try it.
it is an acer
gift for my girlfriend too.
nice. I was a little worried about buying an acer as I had never used any of their products before but for the price I think I got an amazing deal.
Bought the laptop last fall and its still kicking strong. I even dropped it from like 4 feet up one time, no damage and it still works fine. It was off and in a sleeve though. Only thing I don't like is the onboard graphics are trash. But I didnt buy it to play games.
I am still really pleased with my purchase.
For $400 I got:
intel t3400 cpu
intel 4500m graphics
2gb of ddr2 ram (upgraded to 3gb)
250gb seagate HDD
vista home premium
built in wireless N
and all the other standard stuff
it didn't come with a battery so i gotta get that but still not bad. total cost is like $320
THe gpu is the same as yours and it is trash but she does office, myspace, facebook, scrabble ect.
The graphics really are trash. The best games I can play on it at decent speeds is HL2 and CSS at 800x600 w/ every setting at low. At thats only at like 40fps which drives me crazy. I play all my games on PC at 60fps (have to have vsync ). But really I have no problems with it for the price I paid. I just use it for office, internet, etc. If I do game on it I just play emulators and it handles that fine.
