    Right so in my early 2011 MBP I'm planning to fit a 500GB EVO SSD. I currently have bootcamp partition of 80GB on my existing 500GB HD and so I'm wondering what the best configuration for keeping both is. I hardly use the bootcamp but find it useful every now and again.

    I heard you can't put bootcamp on the drive in the optical bay?

    So should I put the SSD with my OSX in the optical bay or will that limit its performance?

    Or should I just copy both OSs over to the SSD and used the HDD for longer term storage in the optical bay?

    So many questions, such minimal knowledge.
