Hiya, Caf!

CTW> 80 Gig SATA Seagate ST380013AS 8MB cache $137.00
ST: "Seagate Technology"-''||||||||
 3: Form Factor Designator-'|||||||
80013: Capacity (MB, raw)---'''''||
 A: ATA -------------------------'|
 S: ? ----------------------------'

[I'm not sure what the 'S' is for; being an 80G drive I'm sure it's
 probably at least Ultra/100, as the "ST320420A" I have will handle

In short, the "13" suffix is part of the capacity and has nothing to
do with the cache size or any other attribute.  Maybe the 'S' at the
end indicates that there's a cache somewhere.
