Re: F**k Dell
Something has to give somewhere. People want small. They also want an ooptical drive, 2-3 USB, VGA, HDMI, mic and headphones jacks. Add a physical switch for wireless, eSATA, memory cards, 1394 ports, and somewhere you need a vent for the fan. Side accessible HDD takes 2.5 inches of space. For an item that most users will never have to remove.

said by AsherN:Well, this one was more or less in the same space in the lower right-hand corner as a side accessible drive. All it was missing was the accessibility, so I don't see how it would have taken up any more space if they just had placed a handle there to pull it out. The user may not remove it but--especially with all the software problems that are bound to occur--removing the drive is far and away the most common device that will need this access.
