Aurora R13, how many hard drive bays?

I have an old Alienware desktop, and it has 3 hard drive bays. How many are in the new R13? I'd like 3 drives, but it looks like there are only 2.

It has three sata ports on motherboard for three sata drives.  The 3.5 bay has two sata power connectors. If you use a 3.5 to 2.5 adapter you can install two 2.5 drives in the same bay.  Additional one 2.5 bay with only one sata power connector. Total up to three 2.5 drives or two 3.5+2.5 drives.
