I know there has been a lot of threads on this, but I'm just trying to straighten out all of the information given my setup. I have a new 2011 macbook pro with a 500gb 7200 stock hard drive. I'd like to take out the optibay and add in a 128 gb ssd. I've seen plenty of videos, so I'm fine on the mechanical aspects. I'm just needing some advice on components and configuration. Can you advise me on the following items. 1) Advice on the best/fastest ssd that's compatible and reliable? I'm not that price sensitive. 2) Which drive to put in which bay? 3) Once the ssd is in place, how do I copy the disk image from the original HD to the SSD? I'll have programs installed by computer services, so I don't want to do a fresh install. 4) I'll be running parallels or fusion on the machine. This may be setup prior to the addition of the ssd. The 500gb drive will likely be partitioned 400mac 100windows. How will this work when I do the transfer? Can I just transfer over all of the mac files/os? Would you suggest moving over the windows OS? How much space should I allocate for each if I do? I'm running parallels just so I can run one program, SAS. Thanks in advance. This is the first time I've ever tried to do something like this.
