    I just want to know will the sudden motion sensor works if I put a HDD into a 2011 macbook pro's optical drive position...

    So many threads on this :)

    I think the general consensus is that the optibay itself does not have SMS... but you can in fact buy a HDD with build-in SMS, like the WD Scorpio Black. That will work in the optibay, and allow you to put a sata iii drive in the main bay :)
