    I upgraded my hd to an SSD, and am looking to put a HD into the optical bay. Im currently looking at the 750gb WB 7200 Black hd, but I can't find any info on available 1tb 7200rpm 9.5 hd's.

    Are you running an SSD that supports SATA 3 (6Gbps)? If not, why not move the SSD to the optical bay?

    I don't think such a thing exists. The platters aren't spun that fast or at that density. so, for a 1tb drive, you need a 12.5mm which does work in the macbooks btw. I think the fastest is the 5200rpm one from seagate/ western digital. I forgot which one.

    I have the Crucial c300... I read that it was better to have the SSD in the hd slot because of "sleep" issues?

    I think the only issues happened when the computer goes into hibernation, when the battery dies.

    No 9.5mm 1TB drives yet, much less 7200 RPM. Should be fairly soon that we see potentially a 5400 model though.
