Any drive, any laptop. I think ACPI supports IDE hotswap.

Interesting.  I don't plan on getting any arrows in my back, though!

I'd feel more comfortable hotswapping SATA drives, though, since it uses more SCSI code, and scan-scsi-bus.sh might pick it up.

Besides, laptops only have 1 hard drive, no?

Some laptops have an additional media bay that has IDE connections.
