Upon hearing of the new 13" Retina MacBook Pro's, I've come to the conclusion that I'm just going to max out a 13", non-retina, MacBook Pro. With this in mind, I want to purchase a 256GB Samsung 830 SSD for my laptop to boot from and use the 750GB 5400RPM HDD it comes with in place of the SuperDrive using a caddy to hold all my larger files and media. I've searched around the forums and looked for answers and, while I got most of them to the questions I had, I still have a few that I hope some of you can answer. I'll lay them out as simply as I can. I intend to put the SSD where the stock hard drive would be and put the 750GB HD in the SuperDrives location. I'm going to be doing the computer from stock when I purchase it so I'm just going to clone my SSD from the bootable HDD it came with, switch them, and then utilize the SSD as the bootable drive in the hard drive slot. With that in mind though, here's my question: 1. Do I need to format the 750GB HDD now in the SuperDrive's location, or should I leave it the same, as a bootable disc? I assume I should just format it to Mac OS Extended and utilize it as a readable drive (like you would an external hard drive you intend to use as storage) but I could be wrong. Also, another question arises. I want my SSD (obviously) to be my boot drive, containing my OS and my applications so that everything launches as fast as it can. With this in mind I have a few questions: 2. If I'm booting from my SSD and want my iTunes and media library on the HDD in the SuperDrive slot, how do I set them up? Do I use raid, or do I just treat that HDD as a destination for files and just remember to keep my media on the HDD? 3. What's the most efficient way to make the computer utilize the SSD the fastest and make sure it saves what I want on the SSD and not the HDD and vice versa, so I can maximize the speed of the computer? I hope these questions make sense and if you don't understand what I mean (because I'm confusing you or not making sense haha) then just let me know and I'll do my best to elaborate. Thanks guys!
