Oh, but they do.  Back around '96 I opened up a Packard Bell machine that had 
a "2gb" hard drive.  Inside, it was actually a 1.2gb drive and an 800mb 
drive, with modified firmware so it looked like one drive.  Neither drive 
would work by itself.  So, they effectively doubled the chance of failure.
