Well, more specifically, spindle would be the physical disk - if your physical disk layout consists of 4 disks (completely ignoring RAID groups) you have 4 spindles.

If you were to take those 4 disks and make a single RAID group (any type of RAID for this example, it does not matter) for the system to use, you are presented with 1 logical disk to the system but there's still 4 physical spindles underneath.
