    Looking for opinions from folks that had a HD and put a SSD in there 15" unibody. Do you notice more heat or less?

    Thanks

    1. HDD isn't a major source of heat so that shouldn't even be a concern.
    2. SSD do get warm still. Maybe just a little above ambient.

    I thought it was a lot less heat compared to a sata hard drive.
