    I have a Macbook Pro 15 - i5 of the middle of 2010,

    Would be possible to install a second Disc (SSD +/- 125GB) to work as the first disc?

    If yes, will be easy to install it? There is any SSD disc with compatibility with my MCP?

    Thks for the support

    Look at #4 in the following guide:
    MacBook, MacBook Pro: Replacing the Hard Disk Drive, transferring data to the new HDD

    the guide includes:
    • 0. Identify your MacBook or MacBook Pro
    • 1. Getting a new HDD
    • 2. Guides to replace the internal HDD with a newer one
    • 3. Transferring data from the old HDD to the new HDD
    • 4. Using the optical disk drive (ODD) slot for placing an SSD or HDD inside the MB/P (OPTIBAY)

    And if you mean "MacBook Pro" with "MCP", the proper abbreviation is "MBP", yes, you can use a second disk inside your MBP. I have one HDD and one SSD in my 2009 MBP. The SSD is where the optical disk drive (ODD) was and I run my system off from it.


    Maybe have a look at Advanced Search to find similar threads:
