    Hi all,

    I have an old 15" 2.5Ghz Macbook Pro. The Intel Core 2 Duo 4,1 Macbook Pro. Late 2008 if I am not mistaken.

    I am wondering, if I pick up a 2010 or newer macbook pro (15" or 17") model, can I replace the optical drive with my old 250GB hard drive? Getting me 2 internal drives?

    I remember a while ago there were some people replacing their unused optical drive with a second internal hard drive.

    Is this possible in my scenario and are the drives interchangeable between those model years?

    Thanks

    It will work with the help of an Optibay, like the one by MCE Tech.
