External HDD and Internal SSD
I have an early 2008 Macbook and I want to upgrade it with an SSD. The thing is I really don't use very much storage. I mainly just use it to browse the web and write an occasional paper for school. It has gotten a bit sluggish though, and I heard good things about what an SSD can do. I've been looking at this DIY kit from OWC
I know its only a 60 gb SSD but I don't really need much space. My question is, could I use the SSD as an internal drive, then use the HDD that came with the computer to save other things that I don't use very often, or Music and what not, with the external adapter/enclosure it comes with? Would this work?
Thanks a ton for the help.

It would definitely work. If you want to keep a hard drive in there for more storage, you could remove the optical drive and install a drive bay adapter to get two hard drives or SSDs in your Macbook.
