    Hi everyone. I have been reading about people taking a SSD drive for Boot and OS and using a second HD for their data using MCE's Optibay hard drive enclosure.

    I would love to go this way but I can't justify spending all the cash on a SSD yet. Could I put in 2 500GB 7200 rpm drives and RAID 0 them? I know this wont be as fast as SSD but it should be faster than a single hard drive and hold a lot more storage for less $$$.

    Has anyone tried this? How do you like it?

    i'm almost positive i've read of people doing this. Normally they complain about a reduction in battery life.
