There are PC laptops with multiple internal hard drives, but they won't be light and the battery won't last as long. It would probably be cheaper to buy a laptop with one internal drive and attach an external 2.5" hard drive powered via the USB2 or firewire connection. I do this now and it's a bit cumbersome to lug the external drive around, but not as much so as using 3.5" drives with their own power supply.
