Anyone know if there are any laptops out there that support 48-bit addressing and support two hard disks?

Never saw one, since the whole point of a laptop is size. Also, the largest 2.5" drives right now are at 100mb, LBA48 hasn't been a factor for laptops yet.

Obviously, you can add an external USB disk, I have a 60gig USB 2.5" drive that's not much larger than the 2.5" disk itself, it travels with my laptop. If you're needing more storage, any USB hard disk will connect to the laptop, I've connected my 300gig USB drive to the laptop, works fine.

Thanks for the reply.

My intent is for a different purpose. I need to remove hard disks from other computers and scan them for viruses, etc. In some cases with USB enclosures, the hard disks either aren't recognized at all or are recognized as unformatted. Taking the disk to a desktop at another location and connecting it directly to an IDE or SATA always works out OK.

It was just a wild idea.
