I have a 2008 Imac and I would like to upgrade the internal Hard-drive to a 2tb and get a SSD drive. I have the 2tb drive and a external cace of the old one lined up. (I know its sata so im good there) Now I am looking at taking out the disk drive and replacing it with a SSD But I herd that the Imac I have only has IDE as the Optical drive buss. So would I lose peformace from the SSD but would it still be faster then a HDD? thats what im mainly after. So what kind of adaptor would I be looking at to have something in the disk drive bay? http://www.powerbookmedic.com/DualDrive---Add-a-Second-Hard-Drive-to-your-Laptop-p-17316.html Is that the right kind of thing for the Imac? even though it says its for the laptops? I know my macbook 4,1 is quite close to the imac 8,1 because they came out in the same year. I would also like to keep the disk drive and make it an external drive what would I use for that to make it usb. OR should I look at putting the SSD where the hard drive is and get a adaptor for the disk drive and a 1tb drive where it lives. I found a store where they have offered to do the whole upgrade for me for about 70$ so I can't break the system its self. Just because apple is super nuts on non user upgrade parts.
