So using this adapter, anyone ever use one in a Powerbook or iBook by using a SATA to IDE adapter? So would it be possible to use a 500gb SATA drive in these?

Now if they only make an adapter for the optical drive and stuff 2x 500gb SATA drives into the PB and RAID0 them. Costly yes.... Cool oh yeah!

Is there enough room in the Powerbook itself?

I think I can make room for the optibay(or similar adapter) and then 2 of the IDE>SATA adapters and the 2 SATA Hard drives.
