    Hi guys!

    Do you think it is a good idea to put 2 SSD - One Samsung 830 512g (for system main) and Crutial m4 512g for video/media scretch drive?

    Is this will be good combo?

    The main concern for me is to buy something that that will not cause me any issues and advance "tuning", because I really don't like to mess with my computer all day...

    Second advice I need from you guys do I have to know some special spesifications in order for it to work well with new non-retina macbook 15? (more then those):

    I've found

    for main:

    SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC512B/WW 512GB 2.5" SATA III MLC Internal SSD

    for videoediting (in one MBP body with main via optibay (or you call it properly? - to make it without optical superdrive):

    Crucial M4 512 GB Internal 2.5" CT512M4SSD2 (SSD) Solid State Drive New SSD

    And the last question is would I be able to turn off my Scretch Crucial from Mac OS Lion if I don't want to waste battery energy?

    Thanx a lot for any tips in advance!

    I have two SSDs in my MBP and I'm happy with the arrangement, though I'm not into video editing
