So I've gone through the threads here and the guides over at Mac Performance Guides and wanted confirmation from those here, that I fully understood what I read. I plan on buying the new 17" and will put 8GB of RAM myself. What I was wondering is this; should I get the Apple 128SSD (it's only +$90 for Govt) and buy one of the new SATA III drives, put the Apple SSD in the optibay and put the new SATA III drive in the main drive slot? I wanted to use the Apple SSD for a scratch disk and use my external eSata drive with a Sonnet 34 Express card for the image files. Does this make sense? Thanks guys!
