    Do any of the current MacBook Pro models, Retina or non-Retina, have space within the notebook for a 2nd hard drive bay? Just considering a MacBook Pro as a next computer and was wondering if I could get one with a spinning hard drive and then add an SSD at a later date?

    Only the cMBP (classic MBP), the one without the Retina Display, can be used with two HDDs or two SSDs or one HDD and one SSD or one ODD and one HDD or one ODD and one SSD.
