I was taking my laptop apart today and i started thinking.

Why can't they intragre IDE/SATA cable with power in one cable?

simply you would have an extra power plug on the motherboard where PSU would be plugged, and same way like laptop, power would go thru the same cable.

This would cut down on internal cables quite a bit.

Probably only problem with this would some type of power interferience, or fluactuations.

what do you think about this idea?

Yeah I think the main problem would be interference. Good idea though.
